As construction is being completed at hwys 144 & 17, I see that not much has changed. Why did they not put in turn lanes ONTO hwy 17? The parking lots of CVS and Clyde's could be scaled back to provide right turn lanes. I counted 8 cars out of 10 around me that turned south onto 17 from 144 right in front of CVS. Meanwhile traffic is backed up clear to Kroger. The same goes for the other side of the intersection. If there were right turn lanes it could alleviate a little of the back up.
It is rather ridiculous that the light takes 5 minutes to sit through. We don't have that many people living in Richmond Hill to justify that kind of traffic jam.
