Traffic Alert: Traffic Signal Improvements at Various Locations

The Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) this week is upgrading signals at intersections throughout the community with flashing yellow left turn arrows to improve safety. Research indicates that left-turn collisions are reduced with flashing yellow arrows. During a flashing left turn arrow, motorists should yield to oncoming motorists and bicyclists, yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and proceed with caution when turning left.
