New Traffic Signal First of Its Kind in Montgomery County

Paul Gruner, Montgomery County Engineer, announces that the Montgomery County Engineer’s Office will be installing a new left-turn traffic signal display for the southbound movement at the intersection of North Dixie Drive & Wagner Ford Road on Thursday, October 18, 2012. The display includes a flashing yellow arrow that indicates when left turns must yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians.

The four displays for this left-turn signal display will be as follows:

· Green Arrow – Left turns protected.

· Yellow Arrow – Prepare to stop.

· Flashing Yellow Arrow – Left turns allowed. Left turns must yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians.

· Red Arrow – Stop.

This signal display type will be the first one operational in Montgomery County. The display is intended to reduce confusion by better informing left-turn motorists when to yield to oncoming traffic. It has been thoroughly tested and implemented successfully throughout many parts of United States.

The patience of the public and their careful, safe driving is greatly appreciated.

Please contact Paul Gruner at 937.225.6040 (office), 937.422.4399 (cell), or via email at grunerp@mcohio.org if you have any questions.
