The street light at Aultman and 5th Street has been flashing for about two weeks. The light will not be repaired, according to City of Ely officials. It was reported that one of the light poles at this intersection was recently hit by a vehicle, and parts being impossible to replace. This particular light along with the other flashing street light at Aultman Street and 11th Street are part of NDOT’s project, to be removed. New pedestrian crossings will eventually replace this light. B.J. Almberg, city engineer, recently commented at a city council meeting that there is a procedure to take that light off line, before being removed. Almberg also noted it’s anticipated the NDOT project will begin in the summer.
