Representatives from E-Light, LLC presented their product to residents at Evansville’s Traveling City Hall Wednesday.
The proposed E-Light system would sit adjacent to a traffic signal and would go off whenever an emergency vehicle is approaching an intersection. Fulton and Columbia has been selected as the first spot to test the signal, but E-Light representative Bill Finch said the city and county first need approval from the Federal Highway Administration. Testing can take six to eight weeks. The city will then decide if they want to move forward with installation.
Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke said he supports the idea.
