Bringing Laurel Street in sync
Dear Street Smarts, Q: Any synchronization plans for Laurel Street? Laurel from Chestnut Street to Broadway and Ocean Street is especially ridiculous! M-F Commuter via the Reader Forum A:"It’s being worked on," said Chris Schneiter, civil engineer for the city public works department. "We have run into some glitches with the communications software but should have it figured out soon." Signal lights at the Broadway/Ocean Street intersection are not part of that synchronization system because they are too far away for from the Broadway/San Lorenzo Boulevard intersection to be effective, he added.
