2550 Glenwood Avenue Raleigh, North Carolina
The new traffic sign (currently covered in burlap) appears to indicate a future traffic pattern change at intersection of Oberlin and Glenwood.
Currently, two lanes turn left from Oberlin onto Glenwood.
The sign seems to indicate that one of them will become a "straight only" lane when the building currently under construction at the intersection is finished.
Congestion at this intersection is already getting worse, due in part to the fact that the construction site now gets a green light even when no one is there to use it.
If one of the 2 current left turn lanes is taken out of commission, we will be looking at routine multi-cycle delays for vehicles on Oberlin turning left onto Glenwood.
It seems like that "center" lane should be a combination... go straight OR turn left.
Traffic engineers working on this intersection should also keep in mind a couple of things:
Vehicles on inbound Glenwood, in the far right lane so they can turn right onto Oberlin, often don’t see (or choose to ignore) the existing No Turn On Red signs.
When they do, they can drive directly into the path of vehicles turning left off of Oberlin into the service road, which have the right of way and do not anticipate any oncoming traffic. I have witnessed this many times. The current No Turn On Red signage in this location is insufficient and is already leading to dangerous situations. Hopefully you can address this problem when you work on the intersection. Thanks.
