The Metropolitan Area Planning Agency in the US state of Nebraska will install smart signal technology to help improve traffic flow.

The technology uses cameras and signal controllers that allow traffic signals to adjust automatically to traffic demands in real time.

The systems will be installed through southwest of Omaha and Sarpy County, in La Vista city along Giles Road and in several other spots around the city, according to

The City also plans to open a $4.7m traffic control centre by 2016 to monitor and respond to problems in the region.

The project constitutes a part of the agency’s new $640m construction plans for the development of the area’s streets, highways and trails.

The City of La Vista will spend $114,000 for controllers to coordinate traffic signals, Omaha city will spend $587,000 for signal controllers and 84th Street will get $938,000 for signal improvements.
