Traffic Lights Out Of Sync In Montgomery County

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Thunderstorms in the Washington region are causing about 200 traffic lights to malfunction in Montgomery County.

Authorities say traffic lights in the Rockville, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Damascus and Derwood areas were not synchronized Wednesday morning, and rush hour traffic will be affected.

Emil Wolanin, chief traffic engineer with the Montgomery County Department of Transportation, says the county hopes to have the problem fixed by noon.

Commuters are being advised to expect delays and are urged to take public transportation or use alternate routes.
