DOT monitors traffic patterns


Drivers may notice some wires running across the roads. Transportation leaders tell Newsline 9 they're used to keep track of traffic patterns.

Officials tell Newsline 9 data will be gathered for a number of different reasons, including planning for future construction projects.

"Businesses are often interested in the amount of traffic, local planners are interested in that information, so there's a variety of users for that data," said Wisconsin DOT Planning Supervisor Paul Weigandt.

Transportation officials said the wires are in place for about 48-hours at a time.
