Major intersections around Amarillo will be getting a signal facelift.

The improvements are made possible by a  highway safety improvement program are due to funding provided through the program. 

The updates will include turning traditional left-turn traffic signals into flashing yellow ones.

Traffic experts say studies have shown that this type of traffic signal can drastically improve the safety of drivers and efficiency on the roads.

Drivers will still need to be cautious because the flashing yellow light will do away with the directional green light.

TxDOT is making improvements to the traffic signals, and the city will eventually take over and maintain them.

No traffic issues are expected as the intersections are undergoing updates.
