Owensboro drivers will have a new traffic light to get used to. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to put the light at Kentucky 54 and Leitchfield Rd.

It will operate on "flash" mode starting Thursday then transition into full operation Monday.

The light is actually the first of its kind in western Kentucky. It will not have a protected left turn off KY 54, but it will have a yellow arrow indicating left turns are permitted if traffic allows.
