The University of Utah has approximately 3 entrances to accommodate thousands of employees and students coming to campus.
Recently, a NO RIGHT TURN sign was hung at the light at Foothill and Mario Capecchi, thus it has turned this 2 lane northbound entrance into a 1 lane entrance. It is causing a huge bottle-neck problem. The merge lane is known for its fender benders and I believe that this closure will increase this problem. School will start in a few weeks and the traffic will be much heavier.
Please reconsider opening the right hand turn lane into campus. You could put a flashing yield light to alert drivers to a new cross walk and pedestrians.
