Grant Boulevard at LeMoyne Avenue
Around 1973, Syracuse performed a global replacement on many of its signals.
This marked the first real time that the city started using tubular masts.
Like Rochester, street lights were mounted on the masts; however, the
street light fixtures are cobra-style instead of the bracket style used
in the Flower City. It also extensively used 12-inch, green-colored Crouse-Hinds
Among the streets that received these signals were North/South Geddes
Street, James Street, West Genesee Street and Burnet Avenue. Some signals
have been altered over the years, while otherssuch as this unit
located near P & C Stadiumhave not changed at all. In the photo
at top, the view is looking west toward the stadium. At right, a detailed
look of the newer-style Crouse-Hinds control box. All photos taken
