Farmington replaces stoplights

Albuquerque, NM (KKOB) —  It’s “back to the basics” in Farmington, where the city is replacing some of their stop lights with stop signs.

The plan is to replace stop lights with signs at six intersections.

David Sypher, the Community Works Director for the City of Farmington, says that “Just the electrical and the operation of maintenance on an unneeded traffic signal is around $12,000 a year, so you’re saving the taxpayers’ money for things that aren’t needed and really that’s our responsibility, to try to be an efficient organization,”.
