Flashing Yellow Turn Signals Installed Along Highway 51

FYA-WHEN-FLASHING

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has installed new traffic lights along Highway 51 in Ridgeland that feature a flashing yellow left turn signal. These new lights are located at the following intersections:  US 51 at Ridgewood Road (Southbound only), US 51 at Lake Harbour Road (Southbound only), US 51 at School Street, US 51 at Rice Road (Southbound only), and McClellan Drive (Southbound only). The flashing arrow signal will indicated to drivers that they may make a left turn when traffic is clear. It replaces the circular green light for left turns. When the left turn signal is flashing, drivers should yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians before proceeding with caution. Less collisions occur at intersections where the flashing turn signal is used than with the standard green circle light. For more information about flashing yellow turn signals, read MDOT flashing-yellow-brochure.
