Falls Township will be adding 23 adaptive traffic lights to cut down on time spent waiting at intersections.
The total cost of the project will be $1,355,900, though a Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission grant will cover 80 percent of the cost. This means Falls will pay $271,180.
These signals will be able to adjust in real time to changes in traffic patterns. Lanes with no vehicles will not get the green light, cutting down on travel times and emissions as well.
A project manager with Remington & Vernick said he expects the project to begin in Spring of 2021 at the earliest, and be completed within the year.
Several corridors will receive the upgrade, including:
- Lincoln Highway (Business Route 1);
- Tyburn Road;
- Oxford Valley Road, and;
- West Trenton Avenue.
