Q. Would you be able to find out if traffic light timing in Davenport, between Gaines Street and Eastern Avenue, has been changed recently, and if so, why? I use that route almost daily. During the last few weeks, while driving the speed limit, I now miss most or sometimes all lights, and have to wait at nearly every intersection. -- J., Davenport

A. We contacted the City of Davenport for more information. Gary Statz, Davenport traffic engineer, responded:

"We have not changed the signal timing of any of the signals between Gaines Street and Eastern Avenue in the past few years. The signals at Kimberly Road and Main Street need detector loop replacement so drivers might have to stop there for no cross-street traffic until the loops are fixed. Other than that, nothing has changed recently between Gaines Street and Eastern Avenue along any corridor in the City of Davenport. We will monitor these areas to ensure that the signals are properly timed. The City is also working on new light interconnections to improve traffic flow through the city as funds and grants become available."
