FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - You can soon know about traffic delays before you leave your house.
The Indiana Department of Transportation is planning on installing traffic cameras along I-69 and I-469 in 2019.
"We understand anytime there is a stoppage on the interstate, that can cause a backup which can also lead to additional crashes," said INDOT spokeswoman Nichole Thomas.
Indianapolis and Gary already have the cameras installed.
Bluffton resident Brenda Thomas said she uses the cameras in Indy before taking her son to doctors' appointments.
"That way I know what roads are being worked on," she told FOX 55 while getting gas in Fort Wayne.
INDOT said the project also comes with more message boards and traffic counters.
The cameras will be installed in phases starting with Fort Wayne and Allen County in 2019.
Eventually cameras will be installed along I-69 from Marion to the Michigan state line.
