Goodyear Traffic Control Changes

On Litchfield Road

 

 

(GOODYEAR, AZ) Ð Traffic control changes have been made at two intersections along Litchfield Road.  These changes were made in order to improve the efficiency and safety of the intersections in response to changing traffic volumes and trends.

 

Northbound Litchfield Road, at Van Buren Street

The right turn lane, from northbound Litchfield Road to eastbound Van Buren Street has been changed to a through/right turn lane.

 

The right turn arrow painted on the pavement has been removed and signage has been posted indicating that motorists may choose this lane for both northbound and eastbound travel (essentially creating a third lane northbound on Litchfield Road).

 

Westbound McDowell Road to southbound Litchfield Road

and eastbound McDowell Road to northbound Litchfield Road

To enhance safety for motorists traveling in these directions, additional left turn lanes (dual lefts) were added to eastbound and westbound McDowell Road at Litchfield Road.

 

It is important to note that the addition of a second turn lane in both directions from McDowell Road to northbound and southbound Litchfield Road restricts turn movements to green arrows only. Once the green arrow phase for the turn to northbound or southbound Litchfield Road from McDowell Road ends, the turn arrow on the traffic signal will turn red.

 

Signs have been added at the traffic signal indicating that turns can only be made during the green arrow phase.

 

Signage has also been posted at the approaches for turns from eastbound and westbound McDowell Road to Litchfield Road indicating a traffic control change has occurred.

 

Should you have any questions about these traffic control changes, please call Goodyear Traffic Engineer Scott Nodes at 623-882-7519.
