Power outages in southwest Shreveport
Officers out on the scene report that the traffic signals are back on and functioning at Mansfield Road at Bert Kouns and Mansfield Road and Colquitt Road.
The traffic lights remain out at Bert Kouns and Metroplex and officers are there directing traffic.
Shreveport Police officers are responding to several intersections in southwest Shreveport to check on reports that the traffic lights are not functioning.
Just before 10:00 a.m. this morning, patrolmen were dispatched to the intersection of Wallace Lake Road and Bert Kouns Industrial Loop relative to a truck knocking down some power lines at that location. Moments later, dispatchers began receiving calls about traffic lights not functioning at intersections throughout the Southern Hills area. Officers are responding at this time to the following intersections: Mansfield Road at Bert Kouns Industrial Loop; Colquitt Road at Mansfield Road; and Bert Kouns Industrial Loop at Metroplex Drive.
Motorists are urged to avoid those areas if at all possible. Drivers should remember to treat an intersection with malfunctioning traffic lights as a four way stop if officers are not yet on scene to direct traffic.
