U.S. 90 intersections converting to flashing mode

MDOT has begun the process of converting U.S. 90 traffic signals to the flashing mode, with U.S. 90 motorists having right of way but advised to proceed with caution.

When intersections are in the flashing mode, those with a flashing yellow signal have right of way. Those with a flashing red signal must come to a complete stop and yield to approaching traffic before proceeding.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation, as part of its storm plan, converts signalized U.S. 90 intersections to flashing mode after removing sensitive electronics from control boxes at each U.S. 90 intersection.

No traffic signal? Drivers who encounter an intersection where traffic signals have been either destroyed, downed or otherwise inoperative should treat the intersection as a four-way stop.
