VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) — One of the first Intersection Conflict Warning Systems (ICWS) in Indiana will be installed in the Tri-State.
It will warn drivers of vehicles either approaching the intersection or waiting at the stop sign.
INDOT will install lights and signage to alert drivers on both intersecting roads that traffic is approaching or there is a waiting vehicle. The ICWS uses vehicle detection under the pavement to trigger the system.
The system is being installed at State Road 65 and Boonville New Harmony Road.
The Federal Highway Administration says these signals reduce crashes by up to 20 to 30 percent.
