NCDOT installing blue light trailers, testing wrong-way detection tech

The state’s new secretary of transportation is laying out new plans to make our roads and highways safer.

North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Joey Hopkins says they’re partnering with the state highway patrol to install blue light trailers – vehicles and electronic signs with flashing blue lights to get drivers’ attention…

The NCDOT also want to put the trailers in construction work zones.

The department is also expanding its wrong-way detection systems over the next few years.

They’re already testing that technology at the Triangle Expressway and Davis Drive interchange.
