— Town crews on Tuesday began installing new traffic signals at five intersections to improve safety.

The signals have four lights for drivers making left turns at the intersections: solid turn arrows in green, yellow and red and a flashing yellow arrow. Drivers making a left turn when the flashing yellow arrow light is on must yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians, officials said.

The lights are being installed at the following intersections: Cary Parkway and Kildaire Farm Road, Cary Parkway and Bond Lake Drive/MacArthur Drive, Kildaire Farm Road and Ten Ten Road, Southeast Maynard Road and Cary Towne Boulevard and Walnut Street and the northbound ramps to U.S. Highway 1/64.
