Texas DOT Working to Repair Traffic Signals

May 20, 2024
After Thursday’s storm, 125 signals need repairs

Since Thursday evening’s storm, there have been multiple traffic signal outages in the Houston Area, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is trying to fix them.

TxDOT crews have been clearing storm debris and working to restore normal operations, focusing on traffic signals impacted by the storm. Approximately 125 signals out of 1,100 in Houston need to be repaired.

In order to assist with the recovery process, crews from across the state have been mobilized.

“Our crews are working diligently to restore our traffic signals and return to normal operations across the Houston District, including Harris, Montgomery, Fort Bend, and Waller counties,” said Eliza Paul, District Engineer for the TxDOT Houston District in a press release.

TxDOT is urging motorists to avoid unnecessary travel as traffic signals that are not functioning, and storm debris pose a risk to travelers. TxDOT is also urging motorists to slow down and give first responders room to work.
