State traffic officials are phasing in the new flashing-yellow traffic signals at a heavily used intersection in Union County and at three intersections on U.S. 74 in Anson County.
The signals have a flashing yellow light for motorists making a left turn, which means drivers are permitted to make left turns if there is no oncoming vehicular traffic and no pedestrians in the crosswalk.
The phasing-in process begins Monday at the Anson intersections and on July 1 at the intersection of Rea and Tom Short roads near Marvin.
Here is the schedule:
At the Anson County intersections (U.S. 74 at U.S. 52 South, the McDonald’s entrance, and Planks Road):
Monday-June 30: Flashing yellow arrow is activated from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. every day.
July 1-14: Flashing yellow arrow is activated all times except 7-9 a.m. and 4-7 p.m. weekdays.
July 15: Flashing yellow arrow used at all times.
At the Rea Road-Tom Short Road intersection:
July 1-14: Flashing yellow arrow activated from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. every day.
July 15-28: Flashing yellow arrow activated all times except 7-9 a.m. and 4-7 p.m. weekdays.
July 29: Flashing yellow arrow used at all times.
