WYDOT: Travelers to Laramie advised on new traffic signals for pedestrians installed there
(Laramie, Wyo.) – The Wyoming Department of Transportation advises travelers in Laramie to watch for a new type of traffic control device recently installed at both the Third & Shields Street intersection on the north end of town and and at the Nineteenth Street intersection on the newly reconstructed portion of Grand Avenue.
The FLASHING YELLOW is followed by a SOLID YELLOW and then by a SOLID RED, requiring drivers to STOP at the stop line.
At this time, the pedestrian receives a WALK indication on the associated countdown timer. The pedestrian should look to be certain the crosswalk is clear of traffic, then proceed.
At the end of the WALK indication, the pedestrian is displayed a FLASHING DON’T WALK indication and motorist sees an ALTERNATING FLASHING RED.
During this period motorists are required to STOP and then proceed once pedestrians have cleared the crosswalk.
