There's a real problem at this light. If you're heading south on Maplewood waiting to turn left, it's a long wait even on a good day. A driver is in real trouble though if a pedestrian comes from the Uplands and wants to cross Main. If they push the walk button, they will get a walk sign before the car gets a green and then the light totally skips the driver, who won't get a green. The car will have to sit and wait another lengthy cycle before a green light. BUT, if another pedestrian comes, the same thing will happen again. I love the walkability improvements to West Main and commend them. Could I ask you to take a look at the logic of the light controls at that intersection and at least give the car a green after the pedestrian crosses safely? Thank you so much for the consideration!! Public Works is analyzing this signal's function. Thank you. Traffic Engineering
