The dormant traffic lights by the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre will soon be turned on.
Starting on Tuesday, yellow and red lights will flash at the intersection of 43rd Street and 52nd Avenue to alert motorists and pedestrians to the new traffic signal.
Drivers are reminded that those approaching a flashing yellow signal may proceed through the intersection with caution. Drivers approaching a flashing red signal must stop, observe the right-of-way and proceed when safe. The intersection should not be treated as a four-way stop.
The flashing lights will continue until July 11, when the signals will be fully operational.
Pedestrians and drivers are asked to be aware of this new signal and to use caution in the area.
