‘Smart’ signals to ease traffic in Cranberry

That’s when Cranberry will flip the switch on a newly expanded smart-signal system that ignores municipal boundaries by addressing traffic flow on two main corridors that pass through four towns. An effect of the expanding system will be the aforementioned two-minute quicker ride on Freedom Road. It’s good news for those who use the road and for transportation planners who are portraying Cranberry as a model to be emulated. “They’re leading the way, both from a technological standpoint as well as from the perspective of partnership building with surrounding municipalities,” said Doug Smith, transportation planner with the Southwest Pennsylvania Commission in Pittsburgh.
