      In Tuesday's Albany city commission meeting, commissioners decided they need to do something about North Jefferson Street.

      Commissioner Jon Howard told FOX 31 this street is dangerous at night because of the lack of lights.

      Howard says this is a main road in the downtown area and because of the hospital being located on this street there's a lot of traffic. Howard wants people to feel safe when they're traveling on Jefferson Street no matter what time of the day it is.

      Howard says the commissioners are looking to put several lights on this street specifically near the bridge.
