U.S 90 traffic signals going into flashing mode

City contractors are now placing traffic signals on U.S. 90 in the flashing mode, with U.S. 90 motorists having the right of way.

The move allows engineers to remove costly electronics from the control boxes at each intersection, minimizing the risk of damage. MDOT had requested the action.

Motorists should stop at flashing red lights, and should use caution when approaching flashing yellow lights.

Intersections where traffic signals have been downed should be treated as four-way stops.
