FINALLY!! Yesterday on my way home from work I noticed they had turned on the left turn lights at 35th and Avalon! Woohoo! no more waiting 4 lights to turn left during rush hour traffic!May 27, 2010 at 4:03 pm #695282
Nuni, I noticed them being installed a few weeks ago, but had since forgotten about that. Great news! this intersection really needed a left turn signal!May 27, 2010 at 4:33 pm #695283
Are the turn arrows for traffic on 35th both directions or for traffic on Avalon both directions? I hope for all four directions.May 27, 2010 at 4:57 pm #695284
I agree flowerpetal. Coming down the 35th hill and trying to take a left on Avalon is pretty bad with traffic, let alone making the vehicles behind you back up as well. It’d be great to have a left turn arrow there as well.May 27, 2010 at 5:15 pm #695285
Thanks for mentioning this, I’ve been waiting to mention it on the HP till they finally unbagged the lights. Guess we didn’t go that way yesterday. I don’t think it’s all four ways, could be wrong, will check as we’re going out on a photographic reconnaissance mission for something else.May 27, 2010 at 5:27 pm #695286
No, not all four ways. The left-turn arrows are only for Avalon to 35th, not 35th to Avalon. I admittedly am usually commuting by bus, but I don’t think a left from 35th onto Avalon is too difficult, assuming it’s not being attempted during the “off-limits” rush-hour time.May 27, 2010 at 5:53 pm #695287
When one is northbound on 35th and wanting to turn left onto Avalon, it is quite challenging. I make that turn once a week and there is lots of southbound 35th traffic to contend with… lots!
I too am a daily bus rider; but not for this particular outing.May 27, 2010 at 6:11 pm #695288
