City of Conway to install adaptive stoplights to solve traffic troubles

Local News

CONWAY, Ark. – The City of Conway is working on traffic troubles starting with lights. 

This week the city kicked off a traffic flow project with the Arkansas Highway Department. 

On heavily trafficked streets like Oak, and Dave Ward, lights will begin to sense traffic and will change with traffic flow. 

The city says drivers should see an improvement in drive time. 

“All the lights talk to each other so they will be able to analyze traffic in real time and react to traffic in real time so that you can get to work faster and get home sooner,” says Bobby Kelley.

The goal is to spread the adaptive signal project to every major busy street in the city.
