U.S. Route 15 in northern York County could be getting some new technology that will help to reduce congestion and allow traffic to flow better on this busy highway.
It involves an optical reader that will read the traffic in real time and adjust the traffic signals accordingly.
“We don’t have that anywhere in the county,” said Beth Nidam, a senior transportation planner with the York County Planning Commission.
The project is listed in the in the 2013-2016 Transportation Improvement Program, which is available for public comment this month.
Numerous other projects are proposed for Route 15, including resurfacing nine miles of the road from Golf Course Road to the Adams County line, installing mile markers to help with emergency response and preserving a bridge on the highway over the Yellow Breeches Creek.
What do you think of these proposed ideas?
