Various Locations throughout Lorain, OH
118175 Lorain 611/Colorado - Safety Improvements
SR611 at Colorado Avenue
The following medium-term improvements are proposed:· Rebuild traffic signal: Rebuilding the traffic signal is proposed to improve signal visibility. Retroreflective backplates are recommended on all signal heads in the rebuild of the traffic signal.
The following long-term improvements are proposed:· Remove the northbound right-turn slip lane: Consider removing the right-turn slip lane at SR 611 and Colorado Avenue and creating a traditional right-turn lane at the intersection. Removing the slip lane is expected to help improve pedestrian safety and reduce rear end collisions at the intersection. The traffic signal would need to be rebuilt due to the pole located in the concrete island between the intersection and the slip lane. A layout of the right-turn lane removal is shown in the figure below.
