NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A project to ease congestion along the Pontchartrain Expressway hits a snag.

According to our partners at Nola.com|The Times-Picayune, meters designed to improve traffic flow in the area have not been activated yet because traffic controllers can't monitor them. The meters, which operate like traffic lights, were installed months ago.

A transportation department spokeswoman does not know when the department will be able to fix a wiring problem causing the delay.
