Safety Enhancements for Traffic Signal: E. Main Street at Alum Creek Drive
For more information,
please call (614) 645-3111
City of Columbus crews will make safety enhancements to the
traffic signal at the intersection of E. Main Street and Alum Creek Drive the
week of February 27, weather permitting.
Crews will change the signal operation as seen from
westbound E. Main Street at Alum Creek Drive.
Under the current configuration, vehicles can make a left turn when the
signal is green (green circle) or when there is a green arrow.
The signal operation will be changed to permit left turns
only when the green arrow is lit. A red arrow will be displayed to remind
drivers and cyclists in the turn lane that the turn is not allowed until the
green arrow is displayed. See the diagram below or download a full size version
The changes to this
traffic signal will reduce the likelihood of a collision with left turning
vehicles while maintaining the flow of traffic.
