I am a frequent driver at the intersection of Oberlin and Cedarbridge as I drop off and pick up my boys from school there. Thank you for redoing the intersection- I really appreciate it!
I noticed today that the lanes for turning left onto Cedarbridge from Oberlin South, coming from the Cheder or Orchos Chaim, will be restriped into two large lanes- the new left turning lane and one lane for going straight and turning right.
There seems to be room for 3 lanes here- is this a mistake? After driving at this intersection countless times, I know that the cars will shift into 3 lanes anyways since the cars wanting to turn right will not want to wait behind the cars going straight.
Also, during the morning commute hours, is it possible to have the turning light on Cedarbridge and New Hampshire turn on with each green? I have waited over 5 minutes at that intersection, since only one car could go through if the turning light does not go on.
Response from Mayor Coles:
You are correct. Our agreement with the county was for 2 left turn lanes and 1 right/straight lane. Our engineering office is working with the county road department to get this taken care of.
