Department of Public Works to Convert Traffic Signals at S. Geddes and W. Onondaga Streets to Flashing Warning Lights

Syracuse, N.Y. – City of Syracuse Department of Public Works (DPW) will adjust the traffic signal at the intersection of S. Geddes and W. Onondaga Streets from a standard signal light to a yellow and red, flashing light on Sunday, Nov. 1.

The bi-annual changeover is a regularly scheduled seasonal conversion to address the flow of traffic for vehicles traveling on the busy S. Geddes Street hill in wintry conditions from November to the end of March. The traffic signal conversion will consist of east and westbound stop signs at the W. Onondaga Street crosswalks, with red flashing lights requiring a complete stop until continuous traffic and pedestrians are clear north and southbound on S. Geddes Street.
