We first told you earlier this month about traffic light problems in Bryan and how the lights aren't timed for efficiency, or synchronized.
Well now, the city is closer to getting a new wireless system.
Tuesday night the Bryan City Council approved the purchase of a wireless system for 36 intersections.
It's similar to school zone speed limit signs, with an antenna for wireless communication and a solar panel for power.
They will cost taxpayers 100-thousand dollars after help from a federal grant.
City engineers say the new system will help diminish the frequency of light failures, improve the timing for lights, and will help synchronize lights better.
And that means better travel time for drivers.
The city says you won't find the new system at every intersection in town, but there will be enough to cover major corridors.
The new wireless system is expected to be installed within the next 6 months.
