Riverside upgrades traffic lights in downtown

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Public Works officials say the $1 million project got under way last week and should take about seven weeks to finish.

Officials are also installing backup power supplies, pedestrian buttons to alert when someone needs to cross and so-called "countdown signs" that tell walkers how much time they have left to cross the street.
