In January 2016, the City Council approved a recommendation by the Traffic and Transportation Advisory Commission to install Flashing Yellow Arrow signals at five intersections in the City.

What is the City doing?

The City is in the process of installing  Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) Traffic Signals at five protected left-turn intersections. To learn more, please watch a brief video.

Where is the City doing this work?

Flashing Yellow Arrow Left-Turn lights are being installed at the following locations in order:

  1. Thousand Oaks Blvd. at Dallas Drive (Westbound)
  2. Moorpark Road at Thousand Oaks High School Driveway (Northbound)
  3. Hillcrest Drive at Marin Street (Eastbound/Westbound)
  4. Thousand Oaks Blvd. at Rancho Road (Northbound/Southbound)
  5. Thousand Oaks Blvd. at Duesenberg Drive (Eastbound/Westbound)

Why is the City doing this?

The FYA installations are in response to public requests to shorten wait times at signals operating with protected left-turn arrows. The FYA will reduce delays by permitting left-turns to occur after the steady green arrow is no longer displayed. During peak periods, the FYA may not be operational at all intersections to minimize left-turning conflicts with opposing through traffic.

What are the impacts from this project?

Minimal impact during the installation as the work at each intersection from start to finish is expected to take 4-6 hours.

When is the City doing this work and how long will it take?

The signal installations started in Spring 2016 with the first three sites listed above. The remaining two sites will installed by Winter 2017
