BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - East Baton Rouge city-parish leaders provided an update on Wednesday, March 9, on where things stand with the MoveBR project, specifically when it comes to traffic signal synchronization.

Fiber lines, along with other high-tech equipment, are being installed to help make traffic flow better across the parish. They will allow for better connectivity between signals, essentially synching them to match real-time traffic patterns.

Leaders were asked if the system will be in place for an influx of vehicles on city streets as the I-10 widening project gets into full swing.

If all goes as planned, the MoveBR traffic signal upgrades should be completed by the end of 2023.
