The Montgomery County Commissioners Court has hired Traffic Engineers Inc. for $211,000 to resynchronize the traffic lights on Woodlands Parkway, in The Woodlands, Tx. The area in questions includes the entire 9.3 mile length from Woodloch Forest Drive through FM 2978.

The idea behind the reshyncing is to allow vehicles traveling the speed limit to get through as many green lights as possible, while still allowing cross traffic and left turns enough throughput to prevent backups.

The main catalyst for this resynching is the widening of Woodlands Parkway and the several new traffic lights that have been and are being installed on the long stretch of road.

Precinct 3 Commissioner Ed Chance says, ""It's just an overall resynchronization, we will do as best a humanely possible to make it flow. But we will always have some delays in the (morning)and (evening) peak hours.""

During the last official traffic count in 2006, Woodlands Parkway had around 60,000 cars a day. Traffic Operations manager, Fred Koehler, believes that number has increased to around 70,000 cars a day, with more than 80,000 at its peak hours. With 20 current traffic lights, and more being added, a resynch is definitely promising.
