New Traffic Signals in Alexandria
Beginning next month, the Alabama Department of Transportation will upgrade two more traffic signals along Highway 431 in Calhoun County. The signals at Gate 5 Road and Alabama 144 are the two locations scheduled to be upgraded.
The function of signals will be improved as well as a new look that includes a ‘Flashing Yellow Arrow” display that will feature four arrows. Studies show that flashing yellow arrows have reduced left turn accidents by nearly 25%. The upgrades are expected to take three weeks to complete. Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes during that time.
