Some Binghamton Traffic Signals May Disappear

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

It’s possible that some traffic signals in the city of Binghamton could vanish in the days ahead.

City officials have been considering the possible removal of nine signals in an effort to save money and improve traffic flow.

Signs at the intersection of Conklin Avenue and Telegraph Street now advise drivers that that signal “will be removed” on October 7.

Patrick Torrico, a deputy commissioner of public works, says despite what the signs proclaim, that signal may stay in place beyond that date.

Torrico told WNBF News that the process has “stalled a little bit” because of concerns people have expressed about the possible removal of some traffic signals.

Torrico said the city traffic board is continuing to assess specific signals and considering the comments residents have made.

Binghamton Mayor Matthew Ryan also has said officials will weigh the response from the public before making final decisions to remove traffic signals.
