Woodlawn Avenue at Quail Street

These odd-looking signals are located near Albany Medical Center on New Scotland Avenue. They are odd, because the visors are scalloped for the red and green lights, while the yellow lights have full visors. This signal configuration existed on a stretch of Central Avenue until around 1972, when they were replaced by more modern Econolite signals. The City of Albany has just retired the Econolites, replacing them with new TCT signals. Photo taken 5 July 2002.
