Why is there only one lane as you head E on Main Street at Legacy towards Tollway? There are 2 right turn lanes which are never crowded, but the lane (only 1) going East is always backed up. When is the city planning on changing this?

The two right-turn lanes are needed in the morning for traffic headed south on the tollway. Changing the middle lane from a right-turn only to a thru lane would cause an excessive back-up in the morning for several hours.

We are in the process of ordering a lighted "dynamic lane use" sign for the center lane EB on Main Street at the toll-way. This sign will display a right-turn arrow for the lane in the morning and a thru only message at other times of the day. We expect to have this sign installed in the next 60 days.
