JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, July 15 to help educate motorists about the installation of a "Yield on Flashing Yellow Arrow" indication at the intersection of U.S. Route 50, Route 5 and Route B in Tipton.The informational meeting will be held from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus located at 117 E. Highway 50. The public may attend at any time during the advertised hours to learn about the project or to speak with a member of the study team.The "Yield on Flashing Yellow Arrow" is a new signal indication being introduced to the public. A flashing yellow arrow means left turns are allowed, but you must first yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians and then proceed with caution. It will replace the traditional "Left Turn Yield On Green" indication currently used at the intersection of U.S. Route 50 and Route 5.As MoDOT upgrades the current signal system as part of its maintenance schedule at this intersection, this new traffic signal display is being implemented to provide safer left turns for motorists.Several states, including Missouri, are currently using this type of signal. MoDOT expects the new signals to become the preferred signal display for future yielding left turns. A national study conducted for the Federal Highway Administration demonstrated the new indication helps to prevent crashes, move more traffic through intersections, and provide additional traffic management flexibility for road agencies.For more information about this project or other transportation-related matters, please call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) or log onto www.modot.org/central.
