Four new intersections to have yellow light signals

Four San Angelo intersections have been upgraded to include traffic signals with flashing yellow arrows for left turns.  New signals are located at Sherwood Way and Buick Street; Sherwood Way and Sunset Drive; Sherwood Way and Southwest Boulevard; and Southland Boulevard and FM 2288.

The first local flashing yellow arrow signal was installed in September at the intersection of Sherwood Way and Beauregard Avenue.

When the yellow lights are flashing, drivers must yield to oncoming traffic.

The new signals, which replace signals with green arrow and green light phases, are meant to better direct traffic.

The yellow arrow signal, now mandated by federal regulations, is equipped with a sign that advises motorists, “Left Turn Yield on Flashing Yellow Arrow.”
