You're about to see more green, red and yellow lights in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
The city has installed a new set of traffic lights on 94th Street, at the intersection leading into Starbucks and/or Safeway.
 
"Construction started in October/November and there's one pole that we're still waiting on," said City of Fort Saskatchewan director of project management, Grant Schaffer. 
 
The contractor is scheduled to install the last pole at the end of January.
 
"Once the lights go up, they'll be put into flash mode. It doesn't change the operation of the intersection, they'll flash for about a week to get people used to the idea that they are there," said Schaffer.
 
These lights are part of the Southfort transportation plan, to allow safer movement of vehicles and pedestrians through the area.
 
The lights should be fully operational in February.
