AZTEC — Downed traffic lights at the intersection of Aztec Boulevard and Light Plant Road will not be fixed until New Year's Eve, said state Department of Transportation officials. 

The traffic lights were disabled after a suspected drunk driver crashed into an electric utility control box at the intersection during a police pursuit at 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 23.

Repair crews will not be able to fix the control box until Dec. 31 because of a winter storm in the region, said Ruben Garcia, state Department of Transportation traffic engineer for the region.
