Turn signal ahead for AL 69/Cherokee Avenue at Olive Street in Cullman


Updated 10-2-17

CULLMAN – The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) announced Friday that a flashing yellow arrow turn signal will be installed on Tuesday, Oct. 10 on Alabama Highway 69/Cherokee Avenue at Olive Street in Cullman.

"The four-arrow signal head featuring the flashing yellow arrow is a safe and efficient way to establish right of way for left-turning vehicles at intersections," said ALDOT's Seth Burkett.

After the new signal is in place and operational, signals will appear in the following sequence:

  • A steady green arrow signifies that it is safe to turn.
  • A steady yellow arrow warns that a red signal is coming. Do not enter the intersection if you can safely stop.
  • A steady red arrow means drivers must stop.
  • A flashing yellow arrow means turn with caution only after yielding to oncoming traffic and pedestrians.
