WADENA — The traffic lights at both intersections of Hwy 10, including Hwy 71 and Second Street are currently malfunctioning, according to Wadena Chief of Police Naomi Plautz.
The lights are working but not "talking to each other" as they should be, resulting in longer than usual wait times.
MnDOT is aware of the situation and working to fix it, according to Plautz. She expects to be notified when the problem is repaired.
The traffic lights are not to be ignored. Consider alternative routes if possible.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
