TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

Tuscaloosa is making progress on putting more red light cameras at several busy intersections.

Tuscaloosa's city engineer says more of those cameras could be up and running within a month.

Over the past two weeks, drivers could see crews installing cameras or their wiring on Skyland Boulevard at McFarland and I-359.

Red light cameras will also be installed at McFarland and James Harrison Parkway, as well as University Blvd. and Lurleen Wallace Blvd. North and South.

Currently, only one working red light camera is up and running, the one in front of McDonalds on 15th Street near Dr. Edward Hilliard Drive. That camera has been working since September.

The most recent available stats from Tuscaloosa police show 252 driver were fined in December 2013 for running red lights there. That's down from 306 in September 2013.

The city has posted signs in some areas, warning drivers they're entering areas that will soon be monitored by red light cameras.

Tuscaloosa's city engineer says once the new red light cameras start working, the city will send out an email to notify the public. They are on schedule to start working sometime in March, depending on the weather.
