The City will be terminating programmed flash – setting
traffic signals flash during early morning hours – at four intersections along
Division Street in Spokane.
Programmed flash will be eliminated at the following
intersections beginning Tuesday, March 3:
Division Street & Garland Avenue
Division Street & Queen Avenue
Division Street & Rowan Avenue
Division Street & Central Avenue
Vehicle detection systems at each intersection were
completed in January, so programmed flash is no longer needed to facilitate
traffic flows. Vehicle detection allows the signals to respond promptly to
vehicle demand. The system will allow for more efficient service during low
volumes times when programmed flash was previously used (1 a.m. to 5 a.m.
weekdays and 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. on weekends). 
Eliminating programmed flash also provides for 24/7
operation of pedestrian signals at those intersections. Pedestrian signals do
not work during programmed flash.
