I am given to understand that (and I don't have better references and might be completely wrong) the Texas stoplight cameras were considered unconstitutional (disparate fines for same offenses if stopped by cop/caught on camera, challenge issues, etc), and that the contracts could be continued but not renewed...so that they would be phasing out over a period of years...

The contract in our TX town was cancelled just a couple of months after the cameras were put in. The biggest issue for us was that there was no police officer monitoring the cameras, and you had to pay the fine before you could challenged it. Needless to say, that was challenged on due process grounds and we voted the cameras out almost as soon as they were brought in.
