Montgomery County continues to have problems with its traffic signal computer, and traffic lights are operating on regular, non-rush hour timing.
The computer controls the automated system for 750 traffic lights. The problem started yesterday, snarling traffic in some areas and making morning and evening commutes longer than expected.
A spokesperson for the county says technicians worked overnight trying to fix the computer glitch, but says the issues are expected to continue today so drivers can again expect delays.
Traffic engineers are manually adjusting lights in some cases. Pedestrian crossing signals are functioning properly and the county says Ride on buses will be free all day today.
Montgomery County is two years into a six-year, $35-million program to upgrade the computer system
