They say nothing is certain but death and taxes. Well some North Central Florida drivers would like to add traffic to that list.
It's called signal synchronization and the goal of this project is to improve the flow of traffic in the city of Ocala.
Whether it's by detouring routes when there has been an accident, or just making sure a driver is not unnecessarily waiting at a red light, by June of 2010, city officials say drivers should notice a difference.
City Engineer Bruce Phillips says,
"In a case of an accident...it would allow us to look to see where the congestion is that's been created, it would allow us to route traffic around to change signal timing so that's there's more traffic going in one direction than another direction to try and alleviate the congestion.
City officials say the project will cost 3 million dollars.
