Description

Cross walk goes 'walk' at the same time west-east traffic light goes 'green'. Tons of pedestrians try to cross and only one or two cars make it out of College street. Takes many light cycles to move cars, plus pedestrians are frustrated because cars are trying to get through.

Easy solution for this intersection: have all lights go RED once every few minutes and have all crosswalks go 'walk' for 20-30 seconds. Then back to cars. Rinse, repeat.. Everyone is happy.

Public works please take action!
