    In response to various requests for a traffic signal at this location here our are findings:

    The criteria for traffic signals is based on nine warrants, listed in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).
    Warrant one is an eight-hour vehicular volume warrant that compare volumes on a major street with volumes on a minor street for the same eight-hours. There are two volume conditions to be met, with corresponding volume thresholds for a major and a minor street. At this location this eight-hour warrant has not been met for the eight-hours required by this warrant. Our current signal prioritization procedures are based on satisfaction of this eight hour warrant as well as crash experience warrant. We have evaluated crash history at this location and it does not meet the crash history warrant which considers signal installation when 5 or more crashes correctable by a signal installation (angle, left turns) have occurred within a 12-month period. At this intersection only 2 crashes (susceptible for correction by traffic signal) occurred in 2019.
