Molino Caution Light Cable Snaps, Falls Into Highway 29 Causing Traffic Delays

March 30, 2018

The most dangerous thing Thursday night at an intersection caution light in Molino was the caution light itself.

What appeared to be a steel support cable snapped on the caution light at Highway 29 and Molino Road just before 8 p.m. The cable was dangling into Highway 29, and was reported hit by at least one vehicle. The cable caused traffic delays at the intersection for about two hours.

There’s no word on what caused the cable to snap.

The Molino Station of Escambia Fire Rescue responded.

    I was just south of there late in the morning and as a log truck passed on the south bound lane of 29 he had 2 of his tires running down the highway beside him. One was in the median headed to cantonment and the other crossed in front of the truck. headed across the south bound lane into the woods. That is a scary piece of highway!!

    I have been throughout this country and have never seen such faulty traffic lights and equipment. Even Louisiana has better equipment. Can some of you intelligent people explain this problem? I’m assuming there are intelligent people out there.
