Change coming on November 15 to traffic lights on Cavendish and Kildare 

Motorists using the Cavendish/Kildare intersection will find it easier to get through the intersection starting November 15, thanks to a new split phase configuration.

In short, motorists travelling westbound on Kildare will be able to drive through the intersection at Cavendish while traffic in the opposing direction waits. This allows drivers to turn left (or turn right, or go straight) without opposing traffic.

To help visualize the change, imagine you are a driver who left the JPPS/Bialik campus and is heading west along Kildare towards the police station. When you approach the traffic light at Cavendish Blvd., you can use the left or middle lane to turn left or the middle lane to go straight. Once we have made the change, the motorists coming from the opposite direction will have a red right, which will allow you to turn left (or to go straight) without having to worry about oncoming traffic.

Likewise, motorists coming from the opposite side will have their chance to move through the intersection without interference, soon after. 

Just as many vehicles as before will be able to pass through the intersection. However, the process will be less stressful for many. Pedestrians will also appreciate the change because they will have fewer vehicles coming from few directions to contend with.

Once the change it made, please let us know what you think about it and if it has helped your driving experience. Email us at engineering@cotesaintluc.org.
