ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Cameras are going up at dozens of intersections around Albany. What they record could help you get where you're going faster.

They'll record traffic patterns that could be used to improve traffic flow and cut down on energy use.

We were with workers as they installed some of those cameras Tuesday afternoon.

The data collected will be given to traffic engineers to review in hopes of improving the timing of the lights.

50 intersections in downtown and northwest Albany will be studied.

A possible 60 more intersections could be added if commissioners approve it, then more cameras will go up next week.

Albany got $222,000 from the Federal Energy Conservation Grant Program from the study.
