Currently the traffic signal is green for both directions on E Meadow and W Meadow in this intersection(Waverly). Please note there is no dedicated left turn lanes for cars wanting to go to JLS and they have to yield to the oncoming traffic from W Meadow.This causes a lot of congestion .. lot meaning lot.
Today only one car the first car wanting to turn left to JSL made it and the rest of the cars (20+) missed one whole signal. Then we had to wait again for the next signal praying that we cross this intersection ( E Medow and Waverly).
Just want to let you know if this issue is addressed it will save a lot of people's time.
Let's assume only 100 people are affected by the current system/signal and if this issue is addressed then we save a lot of time for everyone (66 Hrs Per week for 100 people)
This can be changed to make a simple change. E meadow get's green while the traffic from opposite side (W Meadow) does not get the green signal at the same time.
The traffic from W meadow can get their share while the opposite side cars from E Meadow traffic can wait with Red signal.
This will improve the traffic a lot and will be helpful for biking students also.
I have submitted a suggestion to the City .. not sure what if anything is done about this issue. Please add your comments if you support this.
