You asked for it

Left-turn arrows coming

        Question: Why hasn't a traffic light with turn arrows been installed at Resor Road and Pleasant Avenue in Fairfield? This intersection is dangerous for motorists southbound on Pleasant making a left turn. - Gregory Zornow, Fairfield

        Answer: Fairfield Traffic Analyst John Ballinger said a $200,000 signal improvement is planned for this intersection and funding is allocated in the city's Capital Improvement Program budget for 2002. Plans call for a three-way signal with an arrow for southbound
motorists to turn left onto Resor.
        Q: A left-turn lane is being reconstructed from Loveland-Madeira Road to Branch Hill Guinea Pike in conjunction with other improvements in the area. Because a concrete island is included, the left-turn lane for southbound Loveland-Madeira traffic will not allow for any more than six cars to turn. That will cause traffic to back up into a through lane, resulting in traffic delays. Can this be corrected before workers pour more concrete? - James Buss, Loveland

        A: Tom Langenbrunner of the Hamilton County Engineer's Office said the concrete island will be removed and the left-turn lane extended.
       Q: At the five-point intersection of Bridgetown, Ebenezer and Taylor roads in Green Township, undergoing a major rehabilitation, there is more traffic taking Lawrence to Ebenezer. Can the green light sequence at Lawrence and Ebenezer be lengthened to allow more traffic to move on Lawrence, particularly since nearby Oak Hills High School is starting classes? - Mike Hudson, Bridgetown

        A: Mr. Langenbrunner said the county has increased the green light sequence for Lawrence from 13 seconds to its maximum of 35 seconds to improve traffic flow.
