Detroit — A city official said Monday afternoon the power outage that took traffic signals in downtown Detroit out of service earlier in the day has been resolved.

John Roach, a spokesman for Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, said the power to a substation that provides electricity to the lights has been restored.

The outage started Sunday night, affecting two lights along Griswold: at State and at Grand River. 

Grand River at Washington, Clifford at Washington Boulevard and Farmer at Gratiot also had malfunctioning signals, according to Detroit's Traffic Management Center. 

John Prymack, who oversees Detroit's public lighting department, said in a statement Monday morning the outages were due to "water getting into our Grand Circus Park power sub station."
