ORCHARD MESA, Colo. (KKCO) - The light has been installed at the intersection of Highway 50 and 27 3/4 Road, across from the City Market entrance.

Mesa County officials say the entire intersection has been re-vamped, with a concrete island and turn lanes as well as pedestrian walkway.

Officials say drivers need to rememebr the light is operational as of Wednesday morning and there will not be a period of flashing lights, so drivers need to pay attention right away.
