Traffic Light (Group)

The traffic light at the entrance to the Manor has been off its usual schedule, with traffic backing up on Baltimore Ave.  It was surmised that this could be a result of street work (e.g. curb cuts) and that we should wait to see if the light resumes normal operation once the work is done.
