Beacon’s iconic “dummy light” — one of only a handful still in use in the U.S. — was damaged Tuesday afternoon (April 26) when a city truck accidentally backed into it while a crew prepared Main Street for paving, which starts Monday. The city plans to restore the light as soon as it can get replacement parts, said City Administrator Chris White. (Photo provided)
