Street Light Outages on Saddle Club | Traffic Signal at Intersection of Glades & Meadows
December 20, 2019 - Saddle Club Road: A total of 18 street lights are out on Saddle Club Road, from the entrance to Weston Regional Park (including those lighting up the roundabout), traveling east on Saddle Club Road due to a car accident that destroyed the electric service that supplies power to those poles. The accident damaged the entire electrical service rack which will have to be rebuilt, as well as repairs to the nearby FPL transformer. This work will take a number of weeks. See the first map below.
UPDATE: On January 10th the lights on Saddle Club were lit as city crews established a temporary panel powered with a portable generator. All lights except the round-about in front of the Regional Park are lit. There is a damaged section of wire for the roundabout lights which will be repaired shortly.
Intersection Traffic Signal at Glades Parkway and Meadows:
Traffic controls were damaged by a boring contractor. The City has temporary aerial cables to keep the intersection functional but cannot program the timing. The contractor is currently on site working on restoring the signal.
Update as of 3/11/2020: 2 to 3 weeks anticipated to complete the required repairs.
