New Flashing Yellow Arrow Lights
Many of you have talked to us about the new flashing yellow arrow lights that are being installed around the city. There are several reasons these new lights are being installed, the first being our recent Citizen Satisfaction Survey which showed improving traffic flow was a high priority with our residents. Flashing yellow arrows improve traffic flow by provide drivers a longer opportunity to turn left than signals with a green arrow only left turn. They also offer additional flexibility in signal coordination by eliminating the potential for a "yellow trap". The intersections chosen for these yellow arrows were based on an engineering study and a list of installation locations is shown below. If you have questions, contact Transportation Manager Kevin Manning at 913-742-6280 or kmanning@cityofshawnee.org.
