EASTGATE, OH (FOX19) - Clermont County is looking for ways to help drivers navigate one of the busiest spots in the county.

Eastgate, where I-275 and Rt. 32, meet is also home to more than a hundred shops and businesses. Meijer, Wal-mart, Eastgate Mall and Kroger are all within a half-mile of the other.

Engineers will log wait times at traffic lights and use a GPS system to document how long it takes to travel routes at various times of the day.

Once the study is complete the county will update the timing patterns of the lights in an effort to speed things up everyday and even during the Christmas shopping season.

The Clermont Transportation Improvement District received $2.7 million in federal funding for a county wide central traffic signal system.
