Alexandria Traffic Signal Upgrades Begin Tomorrow
A three week upgrading project by the Alabama Department of Transportation is expected to begin tomorrow and drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes during that time. The signals at Gate 5 Road and Alabama 144 are scheduled to be upgraded that will improve the function of signals 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%. During the next three weeks, drivers should find alternate routes and give yourselves extra time to arrive at your destination safely.
