TRAFFIC TROUBLES: Concerns over traffic light at Sunset, Paradise roads

Posted at 8:22 PM, Apr 28, 2017

A viewer contacted 13 Action News about a signal that seems to be going too fast.

John emailed about the intersection of Sunset and Paradise Roads, wondering why the light goes so fast. Drivers can get stuck there for a few cycles without getting through the intersection.

Transportation officials said the light is on a 90-second time sequence, so it does rotate relatively quickly -- but for a reason.

The next major intersection is the Airport Connector to the west. The lights need to rotate quickly so traffic isn't affected at McCarran International Airport.
