Long-Awaited Route 27 Intersection Upgrade Gets Green Light from DOT

Route 27 and Beekman Road intersection to be widened, along with installation of a right-hand turn lane and a new traffic signal.

How about a series of synchronous lights from Henderson Road to Beekman Road say every 200 feet. When North South is red, they are all red. This would give the (imho very dangerous) “cross traffic” a chance to enter the roadway safely. The pedestrians might not have to play “you bet your life” to cross.
And if some one was really an “engineer” there would left turn arrows in advance of the green northbound and trailing the green south bound.
And, let’s get really wild and crazy, and expect all the Gooferment traffic planners to turn the durations longer during the midnight to 6am period and shorter during the other hours.
Then let’s do some tuning for special conditions accident on RT1 and everyone diverts to 27.
Yeah, I know, I’ve lost my head. Remember the Titanic was designed by experts and Noah was an amateur.
