LEAGUE CITY — The first of League City’s red-light cameras is coming down this week.

City Manager Mike Loftin said the city was able to work with the camera company, Redflex Traffic Systems, to turn off the camera facing the right turn lane on the southbound Interstate 45 frontage road at FM 518.

The camera was turned off at midnight Jan. 18 and was removed Thursday evening.

League City voters overwhelmingly voted to remove the red-light cameras last year; 77 percent of the voters decided to ban them.

But to avoid breaching the contract with Redflex, the city council asked voters if they would like to “prohibit further renewal or deployment of photographic traffic enforcement systems” when the contract expires in October 2014.
