Drivers in some Texas cities could get from here to there quicker because of $6 million in federal grants to help synchronize traffic lights. The Texas comptroller's office on Friday announced the funding for 15 cities and one county.

Comptroller Susan Combs says the timing of green lights means better traffic flow.

The money will also be used to install light emitting diodes, or LEDs, in traffic signals for a different wattage to cut down on electric usage.

Communities sharing the funds are Bedford, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, Allen, Bryan, North Richland Hills, Cedar Hill, Grapevine, Killeen, Beaumont, Missouri City, Frisco, Brownsville, Cedar Park and Waco, plus Montgomery County.
