I just drove to the St. Elizabeths campus for the first time, and I waited forever at the light to turn left onto the headquarters access road from westbound Firth Sterling Avenue S.E. I ended up turning on a red arrow, since it seemed like the stop light was not working. Why didn’t I get a green turn arrow?
A: Vehicles must stop in the designated left-hand turn lane at the very beginning of the intersection (at Stevens Road S.E., behind the crosswalk) to activate the left-hand turn signal. Many drivers are advancing past the crosswalk and stopping at the entrance to the inbound lanes of the access road, near the railroad crossing. If you drive too far into the intersection, the left-hand turn arrow will not be triggered. Stopping in the correct place will trigger a light change in about 1 minute.The Access Road Intersection map in the Employee Resources Index clearly shows the correct and incorrect paths.
