Description

There are two lanes north bound in John st. The left lane is dedicated as left-turn only, and the right lane is dedicated as either right-turn or go-straight. The problem is that the few cars that need to go straight to enter the Boott Mills Apartment (like myself) block the cars behind from turning right on the red light.

This causes traffic congestion because the red light toward Boott Mill Apartment takes a long time to turn green. Also there is a city parking garage in that intersection and the cars that are trying to leave the garage are often stuck inside the garage until that traffic clears.

I propose to mark the right lane as right-turn only, and mark the left lane with both left-turn and straight-forward arrows.
