ACTION LINE: Signal planned for South Gate Drive


Q: With the recent installation of speed humps and the continual road construction both on- and off-base, has any consideration been given to changing the southbound left-turn-only lane on South Gate Drive at 11th Street from left-turn-only to left-turn or straight? This would help alleviate the afternoon traffic jam when during peak traffic hours.

A: Yes. Consideration has been given to the situation you describe regarding the intersection at South Gate Drive and Balmer Ave. A decision by the base’s Traffic Safety Council determined that the left-turn-only lane would remain in effect for safety reasons. A traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Southgate Drive and Balmer Avenue, which should improve traffic flow and safety at that location.
