Crews to change traffic signal phase in McCracken Co.

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is changing the phasing of a traffic signal at the intersection of KY 305/Cairo Road and KY 998/Olivet Church Road in McCracken County.

Crews will add the additional phase to the signal Wednesday and Thursday.  The north and south legs will now have their own separate phase similar to the signal at KY 1286/North Friendship Road intersection with US 62.

This is to allow vehicles on the north leg of the intersection to turn left toward Interstate 24.

Regular drivers are urged to take note of the additional phase and adjust driving habits to meet the changes in the traffic flow.

The new traffic signal phase is expected to improve safety and facilitate better traffic flow at the KY 305/Olivet Church Road Intersection with KY 998/Olivet Church Road in front of the Pilot Truck Stop.
