You can make more money and save more money, but once your time is wasted there is no getting it back.
The two largest Piedmont cities have a plan to save you time, a little gas money, and maybe some aggravation too.
Both Greensboro and Winston-Salem are putting in new traffic light systems which will help synchronize the lights. This means less of your time is wasted, but it comes at a cost, and your tax money pays for it.
In Winston-Salem the upgrade of 400 traffic signals will cost about $20-million.
In Greensboro, upgrading 486 traffic signals costs about $24-million and the city is in the middle of the work right now.
222 out of 486 intersections have already been upgraded.
That project started in August of 2010 and should by complete by the end of April 2013.
