News release from INDOT:
Signal Modernization Scheduled on S.R. 3 in Allen County
Specific intersections will see new flashing yellow arrows on left-turn signals
ALLEN COUNTY (May 16, 2016) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces signal improvements to numerous intersections along U.S. 27 in Allen County beginning next week.
The project consists of adding new signals heads, cabinets and other upgrades designated for each area, as well as the addition of flashing yellow arrows (FYA) on left-turn signals at select intersections: U.S. 27 at the I-469 eastbound and westbound ramps; U.S. 27 at Hessen Cassel/Ferguson Road; U.S. 27 at Southtown Center; U.S. 27 at Fernhill Avenue; U.S. 27 at Ice Way/Glenbrook Commons.
FYA have been shown to improve traffic flow and reduce waiting times at signals. Motorists should expect to encounter temporary daytime lane restrictions in all locations. Some overnight work may be needed. The project is expected to be completed by early summer.
Additional signal upgrades, at various intersections along S.R. 3 and U.S. 27 will take place overnight beginning Sunday, May 15, at 9 p.m. Motorists will see traffic directed by law enforcement along S.R. 3, from Dupont Road to the I-69 ramp; and along U.S. 27, from Ley Road to Fernill Avenue, between the hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Flashing yellow arrows are already installed at intersections along S.R. 1/Dupont Road and U.S. 30.
More information about the flashing yellow left-turn arrow is available on INDOT’s web site at www.in.gov/indot/3202.htm.
