(Omaha, NE) -- Supply chain shortages are delaying a stoplight's installation at a Papillion intersection.

According to 6 News, the planned stoplight at the intersection of 2nd Street and Washington Street has been delayed several months due to global microchip shortages.

The city of Papillion made plans to install the stoplight following a fatality two years ago.

In August 2019, a distracted driver struck 10 year-old Abby Whitford as she was crossing the intersection with her brother. Her brother was not injured, but Abby died two days later.

In July of this year, the city told 6 News the stoplight should be installed by October or November; however, the delay in supplies may push back the stoplight as late as next fall.
