The Georgia Department of Transportation and Brookhaven are installing flashing yellow arrow signals along State Route 141/Peachtree Road at the Ashford Dunwoody and Redding roads intersection.
Additionally, intersections to the north along State Route 141/Peachtree Boulevard will see these new signals, including: Peachtree Road, Johnson Ferry Road, Clairmont Road, Chamblee-Tucker Road, Sexton Woods Drive, Pierce Drive, Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, Broad Street, Longview Drive and North Peachtree Road. Installation takes place this month.
The signals are fairly new to Georgia, but are becoming increasingly more common across the U.S. Locally, Dunwoody recently installed several on Perimeter Center Parkway adjacent to Perimeter Mall. Johns Creek has several along State Bridge Road and Medlock Bridge Road.
The signals have three displays, replacing the five display signal which includes two arrows and three balls. The red arrow means “stop”; the steady yellow arrow means “slow down and prepare to stop or complete your turn”; flashing yellow means left turns are permitted after yielding to oncoming traffic or pedestrians; a green arrow means “safe to turn left.”
