They where activated Tuesday from 6 a.m. - 9 a.m. and will be on again from 3 p.m.- 6 p.m. when traffic is due to be the heaviest.

There are four new signs that will provide drivers with travel time estimates and traffic incident information. The signs are located on I-15 northbound at Owens Avenue and Gowan Road, and southbound at Alexander Road and Carey Avenue.

Freeway ramp meters will also be activated at northbound I-15 at Washington Avenue, Lake Mead Boulevard , and Cheyenne Avenue and Southbound at Craig Road, Cheyenne Avenue, Lake Mead Boulevard and D Street.

The assistant director at FAST says it's all about safety and convenience for drivers in the valley. 

Drivers are asked to stop at the ramp meters when the light is red or they could get cited for a ticket.
