Both old and new

Looking eastbound on Park Street. The old single 4-way bracket has just been replaced with 12-inch Peek signals. Photos taken 1 October 2004.

Butternut and Park streets

New signals were operating at the corner of Butternut and Park streets on 1 October. What is somewhat typical of this installation, as well as of a few others in the city, is that the signal will be suspended from one new pole—and a vintage pole. Looking east, one can see that the old pole (left photo), probably installed in the 1940s, has a new control box.

Also, the old green-colored pedestrian signals that were mounted at this intersection have now been replaced by new, state-of-the-art 12" yellow units. The 12" signals themselves replace a yellow, 8" 4-way Crouse-Hinds bracket that was installed around the early 1980s.
