The Indiana Department of Transportation activated Intersection Conflict Warning System (ICWS) at two locations along S.R. 46 in Brown and Monroe Counties last Friday, March 26.

The new systems are located at the intersections of S.R. 46 and Lower Schooner Road (Brown County), and S.R. 46 and Sewell Road (Monroe County).

Each ICWS includes signage and amber flashers to alert drivers of approaching traffic at two-way, stop-controlled intersections, typically a major road (higher traffic volume with no stop sign) and a minor road (lower traffic volume, with a stop sign).

Under-pavement vehicle detection equipment allows the system to notify motorists in real-time of traffic approaching an intersection or traffic waiting to enter an intersection.
