Gulf Shores new adaptive traffic signal system nearly installed

The City of Gulf Shores is nearly done installing a new signal system designed to adapt to the flow of traffic.

Officials say the system, which will cost around $300,000, will be placed at traffic signals along Ala. 59 and will detect the flow of traffic and adjust accordingly.

Public Works Director Mark Acreman says the process is about 60% complete. Several intersections already have the new computer system and are prepared for Spring Break.

Acreman says they are aiming to have the system fully installed by the beginning of Summer.
