CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. —

New technology will help drivers get more green lights in Butler County.

Township supervisors approved a plan to add the technology on the busy Cranberry Township roads, saying it’s one of the most dynamic systems of any municipality or township in the area.

Intersection cameras will be outfitted with sensors to automatically change red to green when traffic builds.

“We intend on putting this system out across 228 and Route 19.  We really see the system growing in the coming years,” said

Director of Engineering Jason Kratsas.

The planning is constant.

“We coordinate with PennDOT and their three projects right now,” said Project Engineer Kelly Maurer.
