Another set of traffic signals designed to reduce road congestion in Lexington went into use Wednesday on part of busy U.S. 378.
The addition means a third of the 35 signals planned now oversee traffic, with more coming through the end of 2017, town officials said.
New signals are centered around the intersection of I-20 and U.S. 378, a bottleneck both for students headed to and from nearby River Bluff High School and commuters headed to work and home.
The digital signals adjust with the flow of traffic to keep vehicles moving to create what town officials call a “green light tunnel.”
Congestion is common in the steadily growing town since three major routes meet in the center of the community.
