If you've driven in downtown Grand Island in the last few days you may have noticed a bit of traffic due to traffic signal bulb replacement.
With snow plowing behind them -- hopefully -- the Grand Island Public Works Department is grabbing the chance to change the bulbs before the summer road repair season begins.
Though the bulbs look okay, city officials say they're due to be replaced.
Grand Island Public Works Director John Collins: "It's routine maintenance. The older, incandescent bulbs would burn out just like any light bulb in your home, and you would change them as they burned out. The new LED's don't do that, they just gradually start dimming, so you have to have a program of replacement where you replace them before they get so dark that the public can't see to stop."
The bulbs cost the city $29 to $35 a piece, depending on the color.
