Travel Advisory - State Route 415/414 City of Corning Signal Changes

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 pedestrians.
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.
