New traffic signal has arrived

Posted:

A new traffic signal may be coming to a street near you.

It's called "the hawk" and it has officially landed in Michiana. It does a better job signaling to drivers that people are about to walk or are walking across the street. It has the standard flashing yellow lights you are used to but it also has flashing red lights.

The first hawk signal in our area is near the intersection of Twyckenham Drive and Vanessa Street near Notre Dame.

County officials are planning on adding more "hawk" signals to our area. Studies show that more than 90 percent of drivers correctly yield to the signal.
