Turn signal changes occur at two Garden Valley Boulevard intersections
ROSEBURG, ore. -- Changes will occur at the following two intesections on Garden Valley Boulevard, effective Tuesday, October 17:
• Garden Valley and Troost Street
• Garden Valley and Estelle Street
The existing left turn signals from eastbound and westbound Garden Valley onto the side streets will utilize a flashing yellow arrow cycle, city officials said.
Currently, these left turns are protected and are only allowed on a green arrow. Left turns will now be allowed during a permissive cycle, which is identified by the flashing yellow arrow.
These three head signals will operate similarly to the four head signals elsewhere on the City system.
As shown in the image, a red arrow means stop, a steady yellow arrow means prepare to stop, a flashing yellow arrow means you can make a left turn if it is safe to do so – you must yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians, and a green arrow means that you have a protected left turn.
As with all left turns, officials say to use caution when proceeding through the intersection and watch for pedestrians.
