ATLANTA - The Georgia Department of Transportation is hoping to ease the commute for people who use metro-area streets.
The improvements could save about 15 seconds at each light, which adds up, GDOT said.
Crews in Dunwoody are already working on a separate project to sync 96 traffic lights there, which will eventually tie in with GDOT’s plan.
Dunwoody is the first city to receive the upgrades, but Stone Mountain Freeway, Cobb Parkway, Camp Creek Parkway, Fulton Industrial Boulevard and Alpharetta Highway could be next on the list for traffic signal upgrades.
GDOT said it will be about a year before drivers will notice an improvement.
