Signal Improvements at US61 and Cape Rock Drive/Kiwanis Drive Intersection
Flashing yellow arrows will be installed at the intersection of U.S. Route 61 and Cape Rock Drive/Kiwanis Drive in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
“The Missouri Department of Transportation analyzed traffic in this area, and the addition of flashing yellow arrows will help increase efficiency,” said MoDOT Traffic Studies Specialist Grant Bowers. “The new signals will signify that drivers turning left should yield to oncoming traffic.”
The signals will also display a solid green arrow when left turning traffic has the right of way. A solid yellow arrow will indicate drivers should prepare to stop or complete the turn if in the intersection.
“By using the flashing yellow arrow, traffic on Kiwanis Drive will have more opportunities to turn left,” said Bowers.
The new signals will be activated the night of Monday, Aug. 9, weather permitting.
