Drivers should see an improvement in downtown Duluth's traffic flow after the City Council voted unanimously to dedicate $524,000 in street light fee dollars to traffic light improvements.

Councilor Zach Filipovich said the current cabinets have been in use since the 1980s. Many have rusted through and allow access to weather and rodents. 

The upgrades will include Ethernet communication. The Duluth Transit Authority will also be able to link their systems with the new traffic cabinets to create for a more smooth flow, Filipovich said. 

The City will be replacing 28 traffic cabinets in downtown Duluth.
