EATON, Ohio (WDTN) - The city of Eaton is in the process of enhancing its roads in an effort to improve traffic flow and save money.
Workers are installing 22 cameras at 11 major intersections. The cameras are designed to detect when a car approaches the intersection and then signal the traffic light to change.
The city was awarded a $700,000 grant from ODOT for the project. Taxpayer dollars will fund the remaining $130,000.
This technology will replace the metal loop detectors currently installed in the pavement at intersections.
City leaders stress these are not speed or red light cameras, nor part of a larger effort to monitor every day activity of Eaton residents.
The cameras are expected to be fully installed by the end of November.
