Albany--Work that will make many major intersections in Albany safer is almost finished.

Last September, the city began upgrading the traffic light system on Slappey Boulevard.

The city says the upgrade is about seventy percent complete. Road crews are updating the signals and improving crosswalks and ramps.

Engineers say pedestrians and drivers will reep the benefits.

"Hopefully the intersection will be more visible, so when you approach the intersection, you'll be more aware of it. In addition to that, the capacity of the intersection will be increased and the travel time be reduced," says city engineer, Walter House.

City engineers expect the road work to be complete by the beginning of next year.
