HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

We start with some traffic light issues, starting with Governors Drive in Huntsville.  Someone commented on See, Click, Fix that if you're heading into the medical district and try to take a left turn at California Street, it's tough for half the traffic to make it through the light because the left turn signal is shorter than it used to be.

We checked the intersection out yesterday and timed the light. Several times, it changed after five or six seconds. But other times, it held for about ten seconds, changing after the last car drove over the line. It may be that the sensor's very sensitive. The City of Huntsville's traffic engineers also checked it out and said they didn't  shorten the turn signal, but they'll check the sensor.

Farther east on Governors, at the top of Monte Sano, there's a slightly different concern. One driver said it seems there's a rear end accident between 7:00 and 8:00 a.m. every week at Monte Sano Boulevard. She suggested putting up a flashing light to indicate when the light's going to change. City engineers say they'll check it out.

And even farther east at Dug Hill Road, you'll notice the orange barrels are gone and most of the signs are covered. I just heard from the State Department of Transportation. They say that the Dug Hill Road project will kick back in with some more paving when the weather warms up.

    Showers and storms will be ongoing across the Valley this evening. The most widespread rain will be over northeastern AL, but additional scattered storms will track into the Shoals from the west. That round of stormy weather will head east with time and should be out of the Valley after midnight. The threat for severe storms is low, but a few strong storms are possible.
