NORFOLK -- Norfolk's first red light cameras are getting the green light.

City Council has finalized a contract with RedFlex traffic systems to install the cameras and will move forward with the first location - Brambleton Avenue and St. Paul's Blvd. near Scope.

City officials say installation should start in February.  Council will get an update on the program at Tuesday's meeting.

Work continues to gather data at seven other intersections being considered for cameras. 

The PhotoSafe program is already watching busy intersections in Va. Beach, Chesapeake and Newport News.

By law, cities can have one camera per 10,000 residents.

PROPOSED RED LIGHT CAMERA LOCATIONS:

Hampton Blvd. and Terminal Blvd.
Chesapeake Blvd. and Little Creek Road
Virginia Beach Blvd. and Raby Road
Military Highway and Princess Anne and Northampton Blvd.
E. Little Creek Road and Halprin Drive
Granby St. and Little Creek Road
St. Pauls Blvd. and Market Street
