Traffic signals at the intersections of Mallory Station Rd. and Gen. George Patton Dr., as well as Mallory Station Rd. and Duke Dr., were returned to normal service Monday after repairs were completed on a faulty CSX Railway switch, Franklin police said.

The weekend switch problem caused the traffic signals to begin constantly flashing the amber signal and police officers had to manually direct traffic at both intersections. The railroad is loaded between the two streets.

Trains were required to slow and stop before crossing Mallory Station Rd. until CSX officials repaired the broken switch just after 1 p.m. Monday, a city spokeswoman said. The mechanism now recognizes the approaches of trains and operates its crossing control signal in the usual manner.
