Letter to the editor: Blue Course lanes need work

I noticed the recent change at the Blue Course Drive and West College Avenue intersection where “no right turn on red” was instituted when turning onto Blue Course.

Unfortunately, while they were doing that study, PennDOT and/or Ferguson Township missed the boat by not correcting another snafu at that intersection.

As you approach the intersection traveling south on Blue Course, there are two lanes going straight through. However, well over half the traffic makes a right turn onto College. Yet, one lonely car (going straight through) sitting in the right-hand lane can bring right-turn traffic to its knees. There is absolutely no need for two straight-through lanes. Make the right lane a right-turn only lane and let’s keep traffic moving.
