Maryland highway lights under repair

During our weekly online discussion on Monday, a reader asked this: "Why does it take so long for the light bulbs to be replaced in street lights? Specifically, the ramp to go to 295 from Indian Head Hwy (210 North). All the lights are out!"

It wasn't a bunch of burnt out bulbs, says David Buck, spokesman for the Maryland State Highway Administration. An electrical control cabinet in that area was struck a few weeks ago during a crash. The damage knocked out some of the overhead lights. The cabinet is
being replaced, Buck says.
