A new stoplight at the intersection of Holland and Pioneer roads will become fully operational on Aug. 25, more than a week before the first day of school at nearby Pioneer Elementary School.

The stoplight was installed because of the new school located at the intersection.

The signal will start operating at 9:30 a.m. that day, according to a city news release.
