New light installed at Rich Beem and Pebble Hills intersection
An intersection in far east El Paso has a new traffic signal. Crew began installing the lights in February.
The Rich Beem and Pebble Hills intersection is the first of 16 intersections to have a traffic signal, according to a city official.

The city official said most of the intersections will have signal lights within 16 months. They expect all 16 intersections to have lights by 2020. The cost to signalize each intersection is about $300,000.
