Time signal services in the USA

In Europe radio-controlled clocks work very well as the most common used transmitter, DCF77 in Mainflingen near Frankfurt, Hesse, Germany is situated nearly in the middle of Europe and most parts have MST.

In USA situation is not so well. First the USA has multiple time zones and than the time signal transmitter WWVB is so situated, that its signal is weakly and much affected by interference in the most densily populated areas in USA.

So my suggestion is a LF time signal station for each time zone, if possible near the biggest cities of these zones. Are there plans to improve the time signal services in the USA?
