On May 20, the Public Works Department will upgrade traffic signal synchronization along Dublin Boulevard from San Ramon Road to Tassajara Road. Motorists will notice a key change in the way left turns from Dublin Boulevard receive the green light to make a turn.
At some intersections, the left turn green arrow will come on after the through traffic green light, which is different from the current conditions where all left turns come on before the through traffic gets the green light.
As part of this project, Public Works will also enhance the crossing times for pedestrian and bicyclists. Evaluation of changes to the synchronization scheme will continue throughout the week of May 20, and staff will make any needed modifications on the basis of field observations.
The synchronization of traffic signals provides significant benefits by reducing vehicle delays and idling of vehicles at signals which in turn improves air quality and reduces travel time. This synchronization project is funded by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's grant program.
