Throughout the city, some intersection signals will be offline due to power outages. Drivers are asked to treat the intersections as four-way stops and proceed carefully, per the announcement.
This is the worst day yet. As the snow slowly melts, we are left with a solid sheet of ice on the roads.
Highways, bridges, and overpasses are particularly dangerous.
If a traffic signal is out, treat it as a four way stop.
