Amber Lights Finally Flashing

Amber Lights Finally Flashing

WINNIPEG - It took four years but amber lights are finally flashing in one Winnipeg school zone, with more to come.

Expert Electric's Chuck Lewis, along with city councillors Kevin Klein and Shawn Nason were there when the switch was flipped outside Mennonite Elementary and Middle School at 250-Bedson Street.

Klein helped Lewis take the idea back to 510-Main Street after it was originally rejected.

It's unclear why it took so long for city hall to accept the offer from Lewis to supply and install the solar-powered lights but he says he's just happy his perseverance eventually paid off.
