HERKIMER COUNTY- The power went out in Herkimer on Friday night, and so did traffic lights.
Officials with the State Department of Transportation said in an instance where there are blackout intersections, drivers should treat it like a four-way stop.
They said drivers should be alert when approaching and crossing an intersection.
"Drivers should obey all the traffic controlled devices and you know, try and get yourself home safely," said Jim Piccola with the NYS Department of Transportation.
Piccola also said National Grid is working to get the power restored to these areas.
