Dear PoPville – Countdown Removed from Cross Walk Signals?


“Dear PoPville,

On my walk to the metro this morning, I noticed that all the walk signals had stopped the countdown feature. That is, they were all just flashing either a white walk sign or an orange stop — see picture above. (This was along Park between 18th and 14th). Any idea what’s going on?”

Hmm, I wonder if has to do with the malfunctioning countdowns we spoke about in June. Will tweet to DDOT and update with their response. Anyone else notice the countdown disappearing from other parts of town?
