News and Notices

DPW recently installed flashing yellow arrows (FYA) at several signalized intersections. The flashing yellow arrow allows drivers to turn left when there is an adequate gap in oncoming traffic. We plan to put more flashing yellow arrows in the future and citizen comments are encouraged and appreciated. Click here for an animated example. Visit our Traffic Safety and Control page for additional information.
