Harrisburg, PA — The first Flashing Yellow Arrow signal in Pennsylvania was activated this morning in Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County, and is now operational. It is located on eastbound Rossmoyne Road, at the northbound on-ramp in the interchange with Route 15. This is a new type of left turn traffic signal that has been proven to improve left turn safety at signalized intersections.

The Tampa Bay region has seen three separate transportation funding initiatives fail since 2010 — two in Hillsborough County and one in Pinellas County.

The most recent was just a week ago, when Hillsborough commissioners killed off a half-cent sales tax to pay for much-needed roadwork and transit projects there.

Maybe it's time to try something together, Pinellas County administrator Mark Woodard said Tuesday.

BEDFORD -- The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is changing the speed limit on hundreds of miles of road across the region. Some roads will soon change from 65 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour.

It's a change that has been years in the making. The 2013 passage of Act 89, or the Transportation Bill, permitted the Turnpike Commission and PennDOT to increase the speed limit where appropriate.

Users of the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Trip Talk app are part of pilot program – one that is transmitting live updates about the construction to their cars and into their phones. It might not sound like much – after all, our phones receive messages all the time – but it's a first step toward what researchers see as a connected future, one where cars will talk not only to other cars but the infrastructure they are traveling on.
