Yes, the arrow's supposed to be blinking.
No, it doesn't mean you have a protected turn. It means "yield for oncoming traffic" before turning.
That's the message city and county officials want to get across about the new signal installed today at Wright County Highways 19 and 37 in Albertville.
"It's, arguably, the county's busiest," said Sheriff Joe Hagerty of the intersection. "And it's one of the worst for accidents."
City officials are hoping that will all change with the $30,000 signal, which will also have the traditional green arrow for protected turns.
The lights were installed through an agreement between Wright County and Albertville. They will be monitored, and the city may decide to use them and other intersections along busy Wright County 19, including the intersection at 50th Street Northeast.
