Description

Every single morning from about 8:45-9:15 there is a huge backup at exit 3 on 91 southbound (often almost onto the highway) to take the left onto Orange. It's actually faster to take a right onto Orange and do a U-turn than to wait 5 minutes to make the left. The city should think about switching the timing on the lights during this period to increase the length of the left-turn signal and decrease the length of the green for the north-south Orange St. traffic (which is longer than it ever takes to clear the cars traveling on that road).
