The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) wants to notify the traveling public that an Intersection Conflict Warning System (ICWS) is coming to the KY 9 (AA Highway) and Glenridge/Ivy Ridge intersection in Cold Spring in Campbell County.
|Barre3 Fort Thomas. 90 Alexandria Pike.|
The system, which is an innovative solution intended to improve intersection awareness, will be in service by next week.
The detection system operates similarly to the traffic loops used to sense vehicles to activate traffic signals. The system detects traffic on all approaches. Traffic on KY 9 will be notified of entering traffic from the side street, and vehicles on the side street will be notified of approaching traffic on KY 9.
These systems are effective in reducing crashes involving vehicles entering or crossing a major road. They also reduce the difficulty associated with determining appropriate gaps in traffic. The ICWS gives motorists real-time warnings about traffic conditions.

ICWS study results show a significant reduction for total, fatal and injury, right-angle, and rear-end crashes. These systems have shown to be cost-effective safety improvements.
