So that you’re not caught off guard this week while driving around Harrisonburg, we wanted to make sure you are aware of a few traffic configuration changes. The reconfiguration is scheduled to take place this week at the intersection of Evelyn Byrd Avenue and University Boulevard and the intersection of East Market Street and Linda Lane.
As pictured in the image above, the plan for this intersection is to reconfigure the intersection approach lanes on Evelyn Byrd to create a left-turn only, a through only, and a right-turn only lane. However, the traffic signals will not be updated with left-turn arrows as the left-turn traffic was not deemed heavy enough to require them.
The University Boulevard approach lanes are scheduled to be reconfigured in 2015.
At this intersection, the southbound approach lanes will be reconfigured to have dual left-turn lanes onto Eastbound East Market Street. This will hopefully reduce wait times on Linda Lane and, in general, make the flow of traffic more efficient.
Now that you are aware, happy driving!
