New Mexican restaurant now open on Greenback
Taqueria Tres Hermanos is now open on Greenback Lane near Sunrise Boulevard, occupying the former Linda’s Pizzeria building which closed in August, 2015. The new restaurant features a salsa bar and an extensive menu of burritos, tacos, and other Mexican food. A license to sell beer and wine on-site is also pending, according to a notice on the front window and online records from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The restaurant’s first day of business was Jan. 14. It is located at 7815 Greenback Ln., between a Sleep Train store and a new Vietnamese restaurant that opened last June.
Antelope intersection goes dark; city says only 50% of stoplights notify staff if not working
“Dark intersections? Tweet us and we will fix. We may not know.” That’s a message the City of Citrus Heights posted on its Twitter account on Thursday, following an intersection outage on Antelope Road. In a series of Jan. 19 tweets, the city said only half the stoplights in Citrus Heights can “electronically ‘tell’ us they are out.” The tweets came several hours after a driver tweeted that the intersection of Antelope Road and Amsterdam Avenue was “completely dark” and not flashing red, as of 6 a.m. on Thursday. By 8:45 a.m., the city tweeted that the intersection was working again, but lights again went back to flashing red for several hours before being finally fixed. As previously reported on The Sentinel, the signalized intersection at Amsterdam Avenue was installed in 2015 at an estimated cost of $550,000.

All photos, including those taken on smartphones, are eligible if they were taken in Citrus Heights between the dates of Jan. 1, 1997 and Feb. 14, 2017.
