Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill will soon have a second “flashing yellow arrow” traffic signal.
Officials expect to install the new signal on Monday near the Dave Lyle Boulevard intersection with Interstate 77. The new signal will make it easier and safer for drivers to make left-hand turns from Dave Lyle Boulevard onto I-77 south.
Drivers seeking to make a left-hand turn from Dave Lyle Boulevard will still be allowed to turn when the signal is green. The new flashing arrow signal will also allow a turn onto the interstate when the light is not green, after drivers yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians.
Officials say the new signal should improve traffic flow and reduce the frequency of car wrecks in the area. A flashing yellow arrow signal is already in place on Dave Lyle Boulevard at the intersection of Mt. Gallant Road.
