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:

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