Spokeswoman: All but a few Montgomery stop lights running normally

Montgomery County roads are finally moving smoothly, as all but a "handful" of traffic lights have been fixed, an official said this morning.

"It's going really well," said county spokeswoman Esther Bowring, just before 8 a.m.

She added that there are fewer than 10 lights that still aren't working correctly, mainly in the Briggs Chaney Road area.

"Maybe they're just responding erratically to the computer commands," Bowring said, noting that engineers continue to run tests on the lights.

She said there may be some backups, but that's nothing out of the norm.

"It's hard to know because there's always normal backups and delays and congestion, even if the system is working pretty reliably," she said.
