The NYS Department of Transportation today announced signal operation changes to the intersection of Centerway Boulevard (state Route 414) and Pulteney Street (state Route 415) in the city of Corning.
Most apparent to the
motorist will be the addition of flashing yellow arrows for north and eastbound
traffic. When illuminated, the
flashing yellow arrow allows waiting motorists to make a left-hand turn after
yielding to oncoming traffic. These changes are expected to be implemented the
week of May 16th.
The new left turn
arrow for eastbound motorists on Pulteney Street and the existing left turn
arrow for northbound Centerway Boulevard will involve new flashing yellow arrow
operations. During the protected part
of the phase, motorists will still see the normal green arrow allowing them to
turn left without any conflicting traffic.
During the permitted part of the phase, traffic will see a flashing
yellow arrow, which has the same meaning as a green ball, allowing them to turn
left only after yielding the right of way to oncoming traffic and
The eastbound protected green arrow
will run from 3:30 to 7:00 P.M. weekdays to accommodate heavy traffic volumes
during those hours. The northbound arrow
will continue to run from 6 A.M. to 7 P.M. as it currently does.
