The traffic light will be on the intersection of thirty third and Murdoch.
The intersection has heavy traffic caused by the Speedway on the corner, and officials hope that the new lights will help keep the intersection safe.
Captain Keith Roberts of the Parkersburg Police Department says, "I think it will make things easier as far as safety wise. Right there at that intersection, there seems to be a lot of accidents over the last few years there. With the right lane ending just up the next block and with all the congestion coming in and out of the speedway gas station there, I think it will be a lot better."
The light is said to be up and running next week.
Drivers should pay attention to the new light when driving through the intersection.
