Traffic Light at Walworth/South/Congreve St

Update: the new fixture being installed at the Walworth/South/Congreve St intersection next to Fallon Field is going to be a traffic light. The contractor is supposed to clean up the debris left there asap after some residents rightfully complained. There have been some issues with the ledge in that spot, so construction and installation is expected to finish by the end of August. Thanks to BTD and Councilor Matt O’Malley’s office for the update.
