Boulder and Meade a problem area

BOULDER TURN LANE: There is a shared turning lane on Boulder between Union Boulevard and Meade Avenue. During rush hour, traffic eastbound on Boulder enters that lane up to a block before Union, sometimes turning from the Olympic Training Center directly into the turn lane. When I turn west off of Union, and need to turn left onto Meade, I am often forced to stop in a through lane, or worse, end up in a game of “Chicken” with oncoming traffic

ANSWER: The city traffic engineering office will look into this to see if anything can be done to try to make it work better, according to principal traffic engineer David Krauth. He said the only real cure would be a median, but that’s not in the plans right now
