TRAFFIC: Illegal U-Turns at Highland and Medford

Question/Comment: Please increase enforcement of illegal u-turns at Highland Ave and Medford St.

City Update 11/16/2009: In addition to a u-turn sign at the smaller set of lights at Hamlet/Medford/Highland, white lines indicating no turns have been painted at the larger set of lights at McGrath. These two changes make it illegal for any car to make u-turms at either intersection. Police have been notified to enforce no u-turns at those locations.

City Update 3/14/09: Request for U-Turn sign logged by Traffic and Parking with DPW. Other additional signs have already been installed in addition to reflectors on the barrier and two-way signs.

City Update 1/20/09: Traffic and Parking has requested the installation of a ‘no left turn’ sign on the island at Medford and Highland. Additionally, Traffic and Parking will request that the City’s Traffic Commission specifically prohibit U-turns at Medford and Highland.
