A traffic light at the intersection of Loop 390 and Texas 154 (Van Zandt Street) in Marshall will be switched on beginning Thursday, the Texas Department of Transportation said.

“The signal light has the flashing yellow arrow light and video detection that will identify traffic approaching the intersection and change the signal accordingly to help traffic move more efficiently,” Rebecca Wells, a district traffic engineer for TxDOT in Atlanta, said.

The project was requested by Marshall city officials last year, with the city contributing $80,000. The project itself is designed to improve safety along Loop 390.

In addition to the new light, the project also includes the addition of left turn lanes and additional street lights. Striping Technology of Tyler was awarded a $284,476 for the project.
