Already reported back in July. B)

Sorry about that, @Loud-Invero needs to either create a spreadsheet

I have the spread sheet, I just need to post it and update it.

Also, I can confirm that the incandescents along Eagleson are no more. I rode the 164 from Tunney's Pasture to Eagleson/Micheal Cowpland

Tremblay Station has some incandescent traffic lights including a self standing 8-8-8 light, not very many of those!

Also, that 8-8-8 is still there on Bronson, however its top shield for the red light got damaged, possibly from construction.

Scott Street and Lanark Avenue:

I could have sworn those were converted to LED as I have been around there when that fatal bus crash occurred, not to mention I've rode the 16, 5081 and 153 along/near Scott. I'll confirm tomorrow after I'm done my overnight shift as Route 50 is nearby and will be running on Saturday.

Bronson and Albert.  I spotted them yesterday but @Loud-Invero reported them in June.

What's special about that one it that it has one of the few aluminum 12-8-12s left in the city.

A bunch of Incandescents along Montreal Road. Those lights Tom mentioned near/on City Park are still there (the ped signals at the apartment complex and at Montreal/City Park). Look at what I found! I forget where exactly, but it's right beside Ultramart/Circle K on Montreal Road before Notre-Dame Cemetery (towards Blair) and can be accessed via Routes 12 and 15.

If memory serves me correctly. I think there was also a silver pedestrian button at Queensview/Pinecrest, but I'm not sure if it's still there.

Not a spotting, but I wanted to post it here so it can be seen. Here is an animated Incandescent Ped signal that I made. What do you guys think? I can give the templates if you like to create your own.

Can you send the template over? Wouldn’t mind trying it out. Do you have any others?

Does anyone where the last rapidly flashing hand was and when did it get replaced?

All hand signals today flash slowly.

I remember one at Eagleson / Hazeldean Mall in Kanata until maybe 2015/2016 (not sure exactly when they changed it), until they changed the speeds to match the other lights in Ottawa.

Here is a photo from last weekend of the old incandescent that still lives (for now) at Bronson/417. If I remember correctly, all of the other signals have been replaced with new LEDs.

(Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving)

It's still there, however the top shield (for the red light) is damaged because of construction.
