More synchronized traffic signals planned
BATON ROUGE- City leaders are set to discuss syncing more traffic lights, especially ones in one of the busiest areas of town.
The Metro Council will decide about replacing lights on College and Perkins to better regulate traffic flow. On College, lights at Bawell and Banks could be replaced. Lights at the intersection of Perkins and Quail Drive are up for consideration.
New light systems would be regulated from the newly designed grid at the traffic command center.
Traffic signals are already being replaced along Jefferson Highway, Government and North Foster.
