If you drive the streets of Houston for any length of time, you are familiar with the frustration of traffic backups at intersections with signal lights flashing red or out completely. Very soon, those incidents will be greatly reduce in the Memorial Management District when the District installs Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS systems) on all of the District traffic signals. The UPS systems will keep the lights working in the event of a power outage for up to 6 hours until power can be restored. This extra level of safety will help motorists during major storm events or power outages. The District is a major shopping attraction year round, but especially busy during the holiday season, the UPS systems will help ensure traffic does not get snarled by an outage. In addition, Memorial Hermann-Memorial City Medical Center will better served by this extra level of protection. Patients and ambulances will benefit by this critical UPS system installation.
