• Possible Changes to St. Albans Road


    The City’s Traffic Advisory Commission in late April discussed modification of St. Albans Road.

    The concern is that there are currently two southbound lanes north of Huntington Drive that become one lane south of Huntington Drive. Motorists currently have the option to use both lanes to go straight ahead, which forces one driver to have to yield to the other in order to merge into one lane.  In 2010 a recommendation was made to modify the southbound curb lane and make this a right-turn only lane.

    In a four-year period a collision history was analyzed at St. Albans Road near Huntington Drive and it was determined that no merger collisions occurred during this period.

    These are the following options available for the intersection:

    1. Make no change and keep things as they are

    2. Convert the existing outside southbound lane and make it a southbound right turn only lane

    3. Paint a merge lane on the south side of the intersection.

    The City’s Traffic Engineer believes there is a greater potential for collision if motorists are allowed to cross the intersection side-by-side before merging. It is the engineer’s recommendation to remove the curb through lane on the southbound approach to the intersection.
