Drivers who use Jovita Boulevard should expect traffic signal changes coming to some intersections near the State Route 167 interchange in Pacific.

Beginning Tuesday, Dec. 5, the Washington State Department of Transportation will implement several flashing yellow-arrow turn signals in the intersections surrounding SR 167 at Jovita Boulevard. The first flashing yellow-arrow signal will be at the Eighth Street East on-ramp to southbound SR 167.

Currently, drivers are allowed to make a left turn only during the green-arrow turn signal. Once the signal modifications are in place, drivers will also be allowed to turn left during the flashing yellow-arrow after yielding to oncoming traffic. After receiving feedback from drivers in the area, WSDOT decided it was appropriate to make this change to give more time for drivers to make the turn.
