Springfield drivers are seeing some changes at several heavily traveled intersections.
IDOT Traffic Engineer Mike Irwin says federal money is being used to install yellow flashing left-turn arrow lights on signals along Wabash Avenue.
“This a national thing. Several other states are doing this, it is all about safety. This corridor had an over-abundance of areas where we had left-turn crashes,” says Irwin.
Irwin says Peoria has used the new traffic control signals and has seen a significant drop in left-turn accidents.
Intersections on Wabash Avenue between MacArthur and Veterans will be fitted with the new devices by the end of the week.
