Maryland installs smart traffic lights to ease congestion

Maryland is getting smart by installing smart traffic lights. On Wednesday Gov. Larry Hogan has announced a plan of $50 million to deploy this system. This system will use real-time traffic conditions and computer software to create smart traffic signals.

Hogan administration said this method would ease congestion for 700,000 drivers in a day on 14 important corridors. Three of them are in Anne Arundel County, three in Charles County, two in Baltimore County and others at Harford, Prince George’s County, Howard and Montgomery Counties.

State highway engineers looked up for data from Automatic Traffic records and analysed where the congestion is worst and worked this plan. These signals will go in over next year.
