Motorists at the intersection of Trade and John streets in downtown Matthews will notice delays after 4 p.m. June 24 as state crews prepare to install a new traffic signal.
By June 25 workers expect to begin integrating a yellow flashing left-turn signal at the intersection, according to a news release from the North Carolina Department of Transportation. Flashing yellow arrows mean motorists can turn only after yielding to oncoming traffic and can help to increase efficiency at intersections, officials say.
Motorists will see the flashing yellow arrow:
• June 25 to July 8, 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.
• Beginning July 9, all times except 7 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday
• Beginning July 23, all times
Drivers are encouraged to provide feedback on the new signal by calling Scott Cole or Sean Epperson at 704-983-4400.
