Waterloo street lights out, new LED Lights on the way

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

In one eastern Iowa town, something other then the weather might make it a little more difficult to drive. 

Right now some of the street lights along W. 4th Street in Waterloo are out. This is the area on W. 4th Street between where it intersects with Washington and where it intersects with W. 5th Street.

Waterloo Traffic Operations says the lights that are burned out should hopefully be replaced in about two weeks. 

They say right now they're working to get LED Lights put in throughout the city. Normally they would replace a burned out light right away, but they ran out of the LED Lights. That is why it is taking a few weeks for them to be replaced.  A new shipment is on the way. 

The LED Lights are typically brighter and whiter, which can improve the ability to see at night.
