Traffic signals on U.S. 90 in flashing mode

Traffic signals on U.S. 90 are being switched to the flashing yellow mode along the beachfront in Harrison County. Workers began making the change this morning at 9:30.

Motorists should exercise caution when approaching intersections on U.S. 90, and Mayor A.J. Holloway advises that motorists should avoid using U.S. 90, if possible.

The traffic signsls are being put in the flashing mode in order for expensive computer-control equipment to be removed at each intersection.
