BRISTOL, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Transportation is adding a dash of flash to its traffic signals.

VDOT plans to begin installing traffic signals with flashing yellow arrows in October at 12 locations in the Bristol District.

A flashing yellow arrow means drivers may turn left after yielding to oncoming traffic.

The new signals will be installed at three intersections on Alternate Route 58 in the Pennington Gap area of Lee County and six intersections on Route 11 between Bristol and Abingdon in Washington County. Signals also will be installed on Business Route 23 in the Appalachia area of Wise County and the Gate City area of Scott County, and on Route 11 at Lowe’s in Abingdon.

Two signals already have been installed at intersections in Chilhowie and Lebanon.
