Short summary (Optional): 

Picayune’s City Council approved motions to allow the Mississippi Department of Transportation to install a radio system on top of the water tower on Stemwood Drive Public Works Director Eric Morris said the system is part of the widening project for Highway 11 currently underway. Previous coverage states the system will allow MDOT to make adjustments to the traffic light patterns remotely from the department’s main office. Traffic cameras would be installed at the affected intersections to help with traffic light patterns, but the cameras would not be used to enforce traffic violations, previous coverage states.
