A griper wrote to say after maintenance work was completed at the intersection of 20th Street and New Hampshire Avenue in Northwest D.C., the traffic lights were put back but now are somewhat out of place.

“If you’re driving north on 20th Street, you now see the lights governing New Hampshire Avenue and 20th Street at the same time,” the griper complained. “Thus you see a red light and a green light simultaneously.”

A spokesman responded to an e-mail from us this afternoon and said issues like this get resolved very quickly.

Has anyone else had trouble with conflicting traffic signals?
