GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Power has been restored to traffic lights across Grand Rapids.

A city spokesperson says Consumers Energy experienced two blown fuses in its Coldbrook substation which is impacting traffic signals on the west side of town.

Grand Rapids police say a squirrel got into some electrical equipment and shorted out a circuit.

Police estimate restoration work to take about two hours.

If you encounter an inoperative traffic signal, police say to treat it as a four-way stop.
