(08/23/10) DUMBO - Department of Transportation workers began installing DUMBO?s first traffic light today.

The pole is being installed at the intersection of Jay and York streets, adjacent to a subway entrance. The light will help control four directions of traffic and will help to ensure the safety of pedestrians crossing to reach the subway platform.

Many DUMBO residents say they weren't even aware that the area didn?t have traffic lights, but say they are happy that at least one is being installed.
