Testing for a new traffic signal at the entrance to the Erie VA Medical Center will start next week.

The signal is located on E. 38 St. just east of French St. in the City of Erie.

Drivers who travel through the area will see blinking yellow lights starting Tuesday, July 16. The hospital entrance and the left turn lanes will remain closed until testing is over.

The new signal will be fully operational sometime during the week of July 22.
