Flashing Yellow Arrow to Be Installed on Intersection of Harrison and Buhne
Information from the Eureka Police Department’s Facebook page:
The City of Eureka will be installing a new type of left turn signal. A flashing yellow arrow (FYA) signal will replace the existing traffic signal at the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Buhne Street. FYA signals provide more opportunities to make left hand turns, which means less delay, making the signalized intersection more efficient. The new traffic signal head is a configuration of lighted arrows with four phases:
1. Steady Green Arrow – represents a protected turn, proceed with left turn
2. Flashing Yellow Arrow – a permissive turn, proceed with caution and yield to on-coming traffic
3. Steady Yellow Arrow – prepare to stop
4. Steady Red Arrow – stop
During the flashing yellow arrow phase, and before entering the intersection, look left and straight ahead for on-coming traffic, bicycles and pedestrians. On-coming traffic (during the FYA phase) has a green light. The traffic signal installation is scheduled to occur on Saturday, November 21st, WEATHER PERMITTING.
There will be controlled traffic for vehicles and pedestrians on the day of the work.
Please drive carefully in the vicinity of this and all work zones and visit the City of Eureka’s website for more information about flashing yellow arrow traffic signals atwww.ci.eureka.ca.gov.
