Valdosta - A new traffic management center means safe and convenient travel for one South Georgia city.

Valdosta's advanced traffic management center allows technicians to monitor traffic flow at 80 percent of the city's intersections using 33 cameras.

Traffic lights can also be programmed from the center to accommodate the amount of travel in a particular area.

"There's about 110 intersections we'll be able to control, and it will be very helpful if there's a car accident, or some sort of event where there's a lot of traffic in a certain area," said Jeffrey Messer, Traffic Coordinator.

The center costs an estimated 1.4 million dollars and was paid for by local sales tax money. The city also received $350,000.00 in signal equipment and fiber optic cable from the Department of Transportation.
