The intersection of U.S. 20 and C.R. 17 will work a little differently from now on.
Flashing yellow arrows have been installed on C.R. 17 for left-turning traffic at U.S. 20 by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).
Previously, left turns could only be made at the intersection if there was a steady green arrow.
Now, drivers can also make left turns when the flashing yellow left-turn signal is activated, as long as they yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic.
The lights were activated Wednesday, Aug. 6.
Similar lights were installed on C.R. 17 at C.R. 18. in November by the Elkhart County Highway Department.
