On Friday I posed a question about the legality of u-turns in the vicinity of 56th, O, and Cotner at intersections that are marked with signs prohibiting left turns. The question arose in my mind while reading a post on Chief Casady's blog. Believe it or not, just 32 minutes after I left my original comment on the Chief's blog, Scott Opfer, Manager of Street & Traffic Operations for Lincoln, confirmed that the signs will be changed:
We agree that we should change the "fixed" signs on the medians to the R3-18. We will likely leave the L.E.D. signs, which are mounted on the traffic signal mast arms, as they are currently (a lighted "No Left Turn" sign).That's a speedy response! Thanks, Chief Casady and Mr. Opfer!
