GREENSBORO, N.C. — A new system to synchronize traffic lights in Greensboro is almost complete.

The city started work on the program that helps workers synchronize the lights based on traffic patterns at intersections in 2008.

Forty-one new cameras have been installed at some of the busiest areas, which allow workers to monitor the traffic flow and adjust the timing of signals accordingly.

The cameras will also be used during bad weather to update road conditions.

Guilford County 911 also has access to the cameras.
