A new traffic signal, and a first

A first-in-the-county flashing yellow traffic signal is arriving this month in Shakopee.

The left-turn arrow is being installed at the intersection of Canterbury Road and 12th Avenue.

The arrows are meant to speed up traffic flow while remaining safe.

Drivers can turn left, but must do so cautiously and yield to oncoming traffic. The city reports that studies show drivers find them “more understandable than traditional yield-on-green indications.”

Most new traffic signals going in from now on will have this feature, where appropriate. Exceptions include separate left-turn green arrows.
