Signs leading up to the George Washington Bridge are going high tech to make traveling over the span smoother.

The Port Authority recently finished installing 15 electronic signs along the bridge's approach roads on both the New York and New Jersey sides.

The signs are designed to let you know how long your trip over the bridge should take or help you map alternate routes if there's a problem.

The new modernized signs are the final component in an improvement plan first approved in 2012.

The Port Authority says the real time information will not only help move things along but also possibly cut down on accidents.
