VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) - You may want to slow down if you're traveling in Valdosta, Adel, or Lake Park: New flashing yellow light signals and I-75 intersection upgrades are coming to town.

The Georgia Department of Transportation has announced the newest installments in a statewide maintenance contract enhancing traffic flow and pedestrian safety.

Officials said that last week, American Lighting Signalization began work slated for eight total areas affecting I-75 travelers.

The six intersections listed below are receiving flashing yellow arrow (FYA) signals as well as equipment upgrades like signal cabinets, signal heads, pedestrian signal heads, pedestrian push buttons/signs and a battery back-up system:

 o I-75 NB Ramp @ SR376-Lake Park, Lowndes County

 o I-75 SB Ramp @ SR376- Lake Park, Lowndes County

 o I-75 NB Ramp @ US84/SR38 - Valdosta, Lowndes County

 o I-75 SB Ramp @ US84/SR38 - Valdosta, Lowndes County

 o I-75 NB Ramp @ SR37 – Adel, Cook County

 o I-75 SB Ramp @ SR37 – Adel, Cook County

The two intersections below will get all the same enhancements except the FYAs:

 o I-75 NB Ramp @ SR133/SR94 - Valdosta, Lowndes County

 o I-75 SB Ramp @ SR133/SR94 - Valdosta, Lowndes County

The new FYA traffic lights are set up at intersections with historic heavy left-turning traffic volumes. 

They said that the traveling public should look out for installation crews and new operational features in the coming days and weeks.
