The flashing red and yellow lights at U.S. 31 and Southern Crossing soon will become full fledged traffic signals.
Indiana Department of Transportation announced that the new signals will be installed next week.
However, drivers will see little change at the intersection until about June 19 when the signals are fully activated.
Until then, motorists traveling on Southern Crossing or Road 400S will continue seeing a flashing red light as they approach U.S. 31.
Likewise, motorists on U.S. 31 still will see a flashing yellow light at the Southern Crossing intersection until the traffic signals are fully implemented.
INDOT reported that the traffic signal is a temporary measure aimed at improving highway safety in the area.
A roundabout is planned for the intersection sometime in the next five years, according to INDOT.
Once the roundabout is in place, the traffic signal will be moved to another intersection.
