A new traffic light will be installed at the intersection of Corporate Drive and East Main Street with the aim of helping school traffic near Lebanon Middle School.
Lebanon Assistant Police Chief Greg Young said the new light would be installed some time this week.
Young said the new light would replace the one already at that intersection, adding that it would be similar to the one located in front of the Lebanon Wal-mart.
This new light will occasionally stop traffic heading westbound on Main Street (toward Lebanon) to allow drivers to turn left onto Corporate Drive. Young added that when traffic is allowed to flow through, people in the turning lane will sometimes have a blinking yellow light, which means they can turn if traffic conditions allow them to turn safely.
He added that the blinking light would only be in effect from 7-8:30 a.m., although he did not know if that would be in effect Monday through Friday or every day.
