There's a new tool going up that's sure to save some time and frustration on the roads. It could even save a life.

Electronic road signs have been up for some time on Oklahoma City area highways. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has installed Tulsa's first sign, on US Highway 169 near Bird Creek.

The signs will help pass along important information, from road closings, to descriptions of missing persons when an "Amber Alert" is issued.
