Turning Lights At New Hampshire Intersections Go Live

Motorists using New Hampshire Avenue will have noticed the new turning lights which went live this week. During the road-widening project, turning lanes were installed at the Oak Street and Pine Street intersections, intended to help alleviate the traffic congestion on New Hampshire Avenue during peak hours.

Many motorists choose New Hampshire as an alternate to River Avenue during the daytime hours, being that is is usually far less congested than River Avenue, which only has one northbound and one south bound lane south of Central Avenue.

The New Hampshire project began at the beginning of 2011.

  1. It’s about time, now if they could just go fix James St and Cross St. They put turn signals in when they redid that intersection but the turn signals are on James which never has opposing traffic, they need to be a Cross to alleviate congestion.

  2. How about the stupid light at New Hampshire and Ridge, which has a left turn signal even though New Hampshire ends there and there’s no oncoming traffic because there’s no oncoming road?

    And why does it have to be set to such a long wait?

  3. #1 and #2 have very valid points…. Also should add that Pine & MLK need the traffic light. As for New Hampshire at Ridge., First they MUST WIDEN the intersection on the New Hampshire part..where there will be two lanes at the end. Traffic can flow easier with little backup since alot of the vehicles can make a “turn on red” without hinderence from vehicles making a left turn since they will have their own lane. Also, as #2 stated, correct the traffic signal. It should also have road pressure sensors as well as the timer. We have been lucky the traffic signal has been working good. No waiting there 5 minutes or longer while traffic backs up to Medina or Woodlake

  4. Widen rt 9. Open two more north-south roads. Finish Kennedy blvd to brick. STOP building all these developments. Build cable cars over downtown and for Gods sake bring in a trolly system and the lightrail

  5. How about the light on South Lake and Hope Chapel, the South Lake Drive light should be at Miller Road, this road is horrible in the morning.

    Widen Rt. 9

    If you own property on Route 9 you will lose majority of your property. The travel lanes will increase both ways and you could eventually open your front door and find you are right on RT 9. The state can take up to 50 ft of frontage to do the upgrade and if you think the traffic is bad now you wait till they start tearing up pavement and land for the next 5 yrs. The traffic issues will be unbelievable. And with the growing population in the next few years it will be inevitable that you will see the widening of roads and your taxes increasing so they can cover the costs.

    You complain about the traffic now can you imagine what would happen during construction because its not an overnight event, it takes time..like a minimum of 5 yrs for a widening. And with all the traffic you have out there now rest assured that will quadruple with lane expansion and adding of more traffic lights
