High Tech Upgrades for Traffic Lights in Lansdale
Lansdale officials want to bring the traffic lights of the borough into the 21st century. They've won a $216,000 state grant that will be used to replace the existing copper wire interconnecting the signals with state-of-the-art fiber optic cable. Borough officials say the new network will streamline traffic moving through Lansdale during an emergency. It will also connect borough buildings, electric substations and sewer pump stations as well as allow for live streaming video cameras out on the street.
