Queen Creek Uses Drone To Fix Traffic Flow Problem

Workers in Queen Creek are employing new technology to solve a traffic flow problem. The public works department is using drones to solve an issue near Queen Creek High School.

Director Troy White said the department had been getting calls about the traffic around school pick up and drop off times.

“What we found out with the drone is we can see the whole entire circulation working at one time," White said. "It identified for us all the different issues that that circulation plan had and we’re actually able to fix and remedy those issues.”

White said after working with the school district, they’ve been able to cut the wait at pick up and drop off times down from 55 minutes to 20 minutes.
