Description

At the soldiers field rd off-ramp onto N Harvard St/JFK st, the traffic light placements are misleading. Each day during rush hour cars unfamiliar with the intersection are stopping in the middle of the bridge. Other lanes of traffic with a green light are circling around them, driving on the wrong side of the road and it is most dangerous for the frequent foot-traffic and blindspots coming from the other on/off ramps. If the light is intended to stop traffic in the middle of the bridge, then the timing of the other street lights are wrong because inevitably there are always cars sitting on the middle of the bridge while other rows of traffic are stuck trying to navigate around them. Please move the lights or re-time things to work properly. There is a large accident waiting to happen here.
