1973 + 24 = James Street
(or is it Ron Curtis Parkway?)

This view is looking west toward downtown. The green-colored mounted box at left is a “NO LEFT TURN” sign used during rush hour, left over from the original installation. No international symbol here.
Note the gray paint!

James and Lodi streets

Among the signals installed in 1973 in Syracuse were a string of signals on James Street, from Grant Boulevard to Teall Avenue. Unlike most of the “Class of 1973,” however, these signals were revamped in 1997. All the 12-inch green Crouse-Hinds signals were replaced with 12-inch yellow TCT signals mounted on brackets. In a couple of instances, signals that were mounted on poles would be replaced by tubular masts. The tubular mast installations received a coat of light gray paint, to improve the appearance of the signal unit. Nice reboot for a distinctive street! All photos taken 21 April 2003.
