Roosevelt Island Resident Concerned About Street Lights Out For Two Weeks Near Octagon Building Creating Hazardous Condition - RIOC Responds

Replying to the question What's On Your Roosevelt Island Mind, Mickgirl wrote earlier this week:
I am hoping someone can address why the street lights from the softball field to the bus stop at the Octagon turn around are out? This has been a two week long incident. It is cold & would help.

Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) President Charlene Indelicato replied last night:
It is a cold related problem. It was fixed during the snow storm and has again gone down. Thanks for the heads up and staff will be headed to the area this evening and will hopefully fix it tonight....
adding this morning:
The lights are back on, except for 3 or 4 lights. The initial problem, which was a bad relay, has been fixed. The 3 or 4 lights which are still out need bulbs or ballasts. I'll have to get back to you with a time line for their replacement.

I'm sure President Indelicato will put it on the list for 2014-2015 so it can be fixed around the same time as the tram elevator...which is out of service again today!
