ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Many of you drove to the mall to do some holiday shopping over the weekend. You may have been part of a traffic count to help keep cars moving as traffic increases through Christmas.

Traffic engineers installed counters in strategic locations near the Albany Mall, like this one on Stuart Avenue between Nottingham Way and Dawson Road. They'll track traffic so engineers can adjust traffic lights around the mall to keep traffic moving.

"No one likes to be stuck at a traffic signal so we try to reduce the amount of wait time and move traffic as efficiently as we can during those extremely heavy travel periods especially during holiday time," said Michele Strickland, Albany Safe Communities.

Traffic engineers say they'll adjust lights at Nottingham and Westover, Westover and Dawson, and Nottingham and Stuart accordingly.
