A major winter storm is on the way to the bluegrass state. Local high water issues are possible early Wednesday and that will be followed up by heavy snow and sleet. Significant accumulations are likely Wednesday night and Thursday.
You may have noticed some of the traffic signals in Lexington look a little different than they used to.
Signals at some of the city's busiest intersections now have two red lights, instead of just one.
The dual red lights have been strategically placed at intersections that typically see a lot of red light running and accidents.
Lexington officials say they hope the new lights get the attention of drivers.
Changing the lights costs around $150 each.
The dual red lights are now at 8 intersections in Lexington. Officials say they plan to install them at 7 more intersections in the near future.
The city has partnered with the University of Kentucky to study the effectiveness of the new dual red lights. But it's still too early to know if they are useful or not.
