Traffic lights along N. 2nd Street, including the one on Verbeke Street, will flash yellow until Oct. 11 as part of the road construction project.

As construction continues on N. 2n/a Street in Harrisburg, the city is alerting residents to an updated traffic pattern for the road.

As part of the process of transitioning from the one-way to two-way corridor, the city announced that traffic lights between Forster and Division streets will flash yellow until October 11.

The affected traffic lights are located on Verbeke, Reily, Kelker, Maclay, Emerald and Radnor streets.

Traffic approaching 2nd Street from side streets will be greeted with flashing red lights and stop signs. Vehicles will be required to yield to northbound traffic along 2nd Street.

According to Matt Maisel, Harrisburg’s director of communications, the city is required by PennDOT to flash or cover signal heads for at least 90 days. During this time, the installation of new traffic control devices will take place.

2n/a The street is expected to open to two-way traffic in June, while completion of the road project will likely occur in mid-October or early November, depending on the city.

The project also includes the construction of medians and roundabouts at several intersections. The purpose of the street conversion is to make the road more passable and safer for residents. It is part of the city’s Vision Zero initiative to eliminate pedestrian fatalities.

Plans for traffic lights and speed cameras to relieve congestion on the A31 works

SEVERAL new measures are being put in place for the A31 at Ringwood, including traffic lights and speed cameras to combat traffic jams and speeding.

At a meeting on ongoing improvement work, representatives from the National Highways, Hampshire County Council and Ringwood Borough Council presented plans to adapt and improve the road networks on and around the A31 .

It was noted that there have been continued reports of motorists traveling at speeds in excess of 30mph on local road networks such as Hightown Road, making it “dangerous to walk due to the narrow paths”.

Police will apparently keep a “watchful eye” on such cases, but the deployment of cameras or camera vans on an ad hoc basis has also been requested. National Highways says it has asked police to provide some law enforcement with a security camera van and is inquiring about the use of a CCTV surveillance van.

It was also agreed to increase signage to discourage rat racing on Ringwood roads. National Highways said it would deploy signs to encourage vehicles to stay on the A31 to ease congestion on local road networks. This, however, had apparently been made more difficult with the vehicles’ satellite navigation systems “unnecessarily distracting drivers from the A31”.

One of the biggest challenges since work began has been the huge traffic jam from Southampton Road to Poulner Slipway during rush hour.

With the closure of the westbound slip road on the A31 from the B3347 Mansfield Road, one of the few ways back onto the A31 is via Southampton Road.

This route was described as jammed at peak times, forcing authorities to agree a temporary trial of traffic lights in a bid to ease congestion.

Temporary lights will operate during afternoon rush hour at the junction of Southampton Road with the Poulner slip road. No action will be taken at the junction of Eastfield Lane with the westbound A31 motorway.

Finally, plans are also underway to implement a Temporary Traffic Control Order (TTRO) at the junction of the A338 Salisbury Road and Northfield Road to stop cars parking and worsening congestion, which will has been a problem for nearby residents since work on the A31 began. .

As part of the City of Salisbury’s Department of Infrastructure and Development’s ongoing efforts to keep the public informed of improvements in the City of Salisbury, please note that City staff will be permanently removing the outdated signage system at the intersection of E Church St. and E Isabella St. on the east side of town. As traffic patterns have changed since the signal was originally installed, it is no longer required and will be replaced by a four-way stop.

The work will take place in three stages:

  • The signal will be placed on four flashing red lights from Wednesday, May 4 at 7:00 a.m. and will remain so for approximately two weeks.
  • Stop signs will be placed on all four approaches over the next two weeks in preparation for signal removal
  • The signal will drop around Wednesday, May 17 at 7:00 a.m., depending on the weather.

Drivers should expect delays when using the intersection over the next few weeks. Residents will retain access to their homes at all times.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause. Your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or require clarification regarding this project, please contact William White of the City of Salisbury’s Infrastructure and Development Department at 410-548-3170.

As efforts continue to plan long-term changes to the Alaska Highway at Robert Service Way, the Yukon government has made further changes to a new signal at the intersection.

The changes are due to confusion over the light which was installed in March.

In an April 26 letter responding to Yukon Party MPP Scott Kent about new Minister of Lighting, Highways and Public Works Nils Clarke, noted that the territory was working on a complete overhaul of the intersection with a consultant now in place looking at the benefits of a roundabout versus a realigned intersection with signals.

While this is in progress, the Protected Left Green Light has been installed with the aim of stopping oncoming traffic while the green traffic light is on, protecting those turning left onto Robert Service Way, the gate Highways and Public Works spokesperson Krysten Johnson explained in an email.

Dealing with Confusion

The new signal has been the subject of discussion on social media with a number of residents saying that having a green light for the left turn lane when the next lane has a red light creates significant confusion. . The new signal also made fodder on the Yukon Memes Facebook page.

Many of the approximately 130 comments on the meme agree that the new lights are confusing.

“When you need an instruction sign next to a traffic light, something is definitely confusing,” one comment read.

Others argue that it is the drivers and not the lights that may be the problem, with some offering advice for those using the intersection.

“Green means go, red means stop, if it’s red in your lane…..go now you get this,” another comment states.

Kent referred to the confusion in his correspondence with Clarke. In her response, Clarke acknowledged the situation.

“Making this intersection safe to use is a high priority for the department,” he wrote. “We made some changes to signage and lighting last weekend to provide more clarity for drivers and will continue to monitor over the next few weeks to determine if any further adjustments are needed.”

Johnson said the department was quickly made aware of the confusion, so modifications and signage needed to be put in place. Among the changes were the repositioning of the left turn signal head to better align with the turn lane; add a left turn arrow sign; and the addition of two crossing signs.

“We are constantly monitoring the intersection to make it as safe as possible and will make further changes if necessary,” she said. “We would like to thank residents and drivers for their patience as we work through these changes.”

Long term projects

Long-term planning for the intersection is part of the Yukon government’s efforts to make improvements to the Alaska Highway through Whitehorse.

Plans for 2022 include work between Lodestar Lane and the Whitehorse scales, north of the Robert Service Way intersection, including safer access to and from the scales, improved lighting, additional lanes and the completion of a multipurpose trail.

In 2023, from Robert Service Way to Philmar RV, intersection improvements will be made, frontage roads will be put in place to connect businesses and provide a new school bus transfer station, and there will be additional work to a trail and to add lanes.

Johnson said further details on the exact changes that will be made to the intersection will be announced once analysis of the intersection is complete later this year.

The 2021 season saw improvements to the Hillcrest area of ​​the highway with new lanes, a pedestrian traffic light at Burns Road, a new paved path alongside the highway, and improved turning lanes.

Work is also planned for the freeway near Porter Creek and Crestview, although project timelines have yet to be announced.

This work is expected to take two years and would result in realignments of Centennial Street and Lodgepole Lane as well as 15th Avenue and Birch Street. Laberge Road would be directed to a frontage road rather than directly to the freeway, with drivers then accessing the freeway from there at MacDonald and Wann Road.

As the Government of Yukon has noted on its Highway Plans webpage: “Over the past few years, Yukoners have raised a number of safety concerns about the Alaska Highway through Whitehorse. That’s why we’ve prioritized several areas along the Alaska Highway to improve safety.

Road accidents are the biggest threat to big cats in Spain

Spain is using a new high-tech system to protect the Iberian lynx, one of the world’s most endangered big cat species: traffic lights to help the animal cross busy roads safely.

The system will then alert approaching drivers to slow down and can actually tell if cars have exceeded the speed limit.

There are now around 1,100 of these big cats in Spain and Portugal.

Experts working with the Life LynxConnect program track the big cats with their GPS collars and the new traffic light system also incorporates signage around known lynx habitats, warning motorists to slow down.

“Today the biggest threats to the lynx are run overs and also because of persecution by hunters. It is of course difficult to prevent these animals from being run over,” explained Guillermo López, a veterinarian who works with Life LynxConnect.

“This virtual program was started to try to provide safe crossings for the lynx which tries to warn drivers if there is wildlife nearby.”

The Life Safe Crossing program is supported by the EU and has already been successfully used in Italy, Romania and Greece to protect their declining brown bear populations.

For drivers along Woodbourne Road on Tuesday afternoon and evening, there was a problem – one of the lights at the intersection with East Lincoln Highway was showing red, yellow and green at the same time.

Drivers – some confused – stopped at the traffic light as he flashed all the signals.

Middletown Township Deputy Superintendent Nick Valla said the problem was caused by a short in the traffic light wiring.

Once the township learned of the malfunction, traffic light maintenance contractor Armor and Sons Electric responded to examine the traffic light.

“The malfunction was fixed last night and the signal is working,” Valla said.

The short circuit was caused by normal wear and tear, the township deputy director said.

The township will soon see the adaptive light timing on the signal reset to allow the system “to adjust schedules again based on traffic volume,” Valla said.

PennDOT officials said an intersection with a non-functioning traffic light should be treated as a four-way stop.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the red on the lights is used because it came to symbolize the stopping of horse and wagon riders who showed up at an active railroad crossing in England.

When cars came on the scene, red kerosene lanterns were used to mark dangerous obstacles on the road in the United States. The first traffic lights for cars had red to stop and green to go.

“By the time a third lens was added to traffic signals to indicate the change interval, yellow had become associated with ‘caution’ via its use on warning signs”, according to the 1971 Federal Literature on the history of traffic lights.

Before President Trump’s administration took office, I worked in forensics in Mexico City several times a year for weeks at a time for 12 years.

I had a contract with the Attorney General of Mexico to train and consult with their psychology and investigative services. The man who hired me always assigned me a personal driver who had been a police officer in the United States, so he knew perfect English. Growing up in Tucson, Arizona, I had frequented the border towns of Mexico but had never been to Mexico City.

The first time I went there I was shocked to find that no drivers, including the police, stopped at red lights or stop signs. I asked the question to my driver.

He said, “Drivers in the United States are overly reliant on red lights and green lights, ignoring the road. If you know no one else is paying attention to stop signs or traffic lights, you need to be careful. Instead of that, drivers in the United States have so many accidents because they’re not looking both ways, they’re just going green, and that’s how people have so many accidents at intersections.”

I was also shocked when I saw at almost every major road intersection in my area of ​​Mexico City police in full gear with automatic rifles. I asked my driver what was going on and he told me they were traffic cops!!

He also said car insurance is optional in Mexico City, but accidents rarely happen, and he attributes this to the fact that no one pays attention to stop signs and red lights.

He said, “You drivers in the United States are like robots where you just assume people will stop at red when you go green, but you don’t look to be sure that will happen. That’s why you have so many irresponsible accidents.”

I then saw people pull up on a sidewalk in their car and fall asleep. I also asked the question to my driver. He said, “It’s safer for drivers when they’re tired to pull off the road and rest before getting back on the road, and stopping on a curb is completely legal.”

Now, I can’t speak for all of Mexico City or Mexico, but that was my experience in my area for 12 years.

Why did my contract end?

The manager who hired me said: “I’m sorry, but we cannot use your services at this time because of your President Trump’s stay in Mexico policy.”

An expert says signs of easing pressure on the healthcare system are promising ahead of the government’s next traffic light update – which could see New Zealand in orange territory for Easter.

But others say turning the country orange next week would be “too soon” and policymakers should be careful.

Last week, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said New Zealand was not ready to go orange as health systems remained under significant pressure.

The next traffic light review will take place on April 14.

There were 9,906 community cases yesterday, 626 hospitalizations and 10 other Covid-related deaths – including a teenager.

The number of people in intensive care rose from 29 on Thursday to 17 yesterday.

On the likelihood of New Zealand turning orange next week, Professor Michael Plank said the number of Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations were heading in the right direction.

“This is a gradual but steady decrease in cases and hospitalizations.

“I’ve noticed that the number of intensive care has also come down a lot… which is also good news. I think overall there are signs that this pressure is easing and I think that’s promising. [for a ] potential change to orange.”

University of Auckland associate professor Collin Tukuitonga said while the seven-day average was falling, the number of cases was still hovering around 10,000 and officials should not be rushing to pass Nova Scotia. Zeeland with orange.

He said the second waves of the epidemic seen in the UK, for example, and the new XE variant must be taken into account when considering a change in parameters.

“I would generally be cautious. I just think we’re not really above the threat of the pandemic that we can reduce to orange…all in all, it’s probably premature. I’d like to see what it looks like numbers next week.”

University of Otago epidemiologist Professor Michael Baker said there was still a lot of transmission across the country, including in Auckland, where 1,804 cases were reported yesterday.

“We are generating new cases, new hospitalizations and probably new deaths every day, so when do we say we can relax controls?

“I would say that would be too early for much of New Zealand, certainly the South Island and many North Island DHBs.”

Baker said his “great concern” about the country’s turning orange was what it would mean for schools.

Under the red, face masks are mandatory for school staff and students from grade 4 when indoors. In orange, masks are encouraged but not required inside the school.

“Only just over half of the children have been vaccinated, about 20% have been fully vaccinated now. So the only obstacle you really have is wearing the mask and once you go orange it becomes optional.

“Children need to go to school and it’s really vital that they do, so we need to make schools safe.”

Meanwhile, the Department of Health will now publish weekly reports summarizing Covid-19 data for Maori and Pacific people. The data shows that cases among both groups have declined week over week, but reported deaths have increased.

Twenty-four cases identified as Maori died in the week to April 3, 15 more than the previous week. Twenty Covid-related deaths during this period were Pacific Islanders, eight more than the previous week.

There were 5,282 cases reported in the Pacific in the week to April 3, down from 7,432 the previous week, while there were 18,283 Maori cases, down from 23,050.

Across all ethnicities, the Department of Health yesterday reported 10 more Covid-related deaths, including people who died in the last 15 days.

Of these people, two were from the Auckland area, one from Waikato, two from the DHB Lakes area, three from the Wellington area and two from Canterbury.

One was between the ages of 10 and 19, two in their 40s, three in their 70s, three in their 80s and one over 90.

These deaths brought the total number of publicly reported deaths with Covid-19 to 466. The seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 16.

“This is a very sad time for whānau and his friends and our thoughts and condolences are with them,” the ministry said in a statement.

Yesterday’s seven-day case average is 11,281, while last Friday it was 14,171.

CLARKSBURG, W.Va – A red light at the intersection of S. Chestnut Street and Camden Street in Clarksburg is being removed to make way for new stop signs that will turn the intersection into a four-way stop.

According to a City of Clarksburg Facebook post, the change is at the direction of the Traffic Commission and in the interest of public safety.

The intersection of S. Chestnut Street and Camden Street in Clarksburg as seen on Google Earth.

The city said that while the light was never discontinued, it was replaced with a flashing yellow light to allow for a continued flow of traffic on Chestnut Street. The city said that without the stop, traffic on Chestnut Street is dangerous, often due to a lack of driver caution. Residents had filed several complaints about the broken light, but the city said the light was working properly.

Now, instead of having a flashing red or yellow light on the stop light, all drivers approaching the intersection will be required to stop at brand new stop signs.

If there are any other issues that you think the City of Clarksburg should be aware of, you can submit a request using this link.
