Traffic light at Superlake is gone

Post by sm1mex on Mon Apr 16, 2018 1:08 pm

They have moved the light to Panino's, so the intersection at Superlake is now jammed.  Wonder why they moved it to a less busy area?

When you say the intersection is jammed I assume you mean jammed getting out of Super lake but not the caraterra?

I was at the Wal-Mart intersection around 11:00am and it was clear sailing.

Yeah, oh thank god they've solved the traffic problem! Not.

Traffic east-bound backed up to the Domino's strip mall, inching along, no light at SL and 5 cars and 2 pedestrians impatient and anxious to get out of SL but traffic blocking everything, Pollo standing out on Carretera on his phone not looking happy, and red light at Paninos intersection.

At least that condo complex/shopping mall crap appears to have run out of money. Or whatever.

The intersection is blocked between Bellon and the road coming up just east of the liquor store, as the careterra traffic is backed up across the intersection, so the traffic from superlake and the bus traffic coming up from the south is jammed, as there now is no light to stopped the traffic at the careterra so cars are just blocking the intersection going east and west. I don't understand why they moved it to Panino's where the intersection is not busy with traffic.

I'm sure it's all part of The Master Plan. Very Happy

Funny, I drove from Ajijic to Riberas around 10:30 this morning and I didn't even notice the change. Didn't notice on the way back either. And as I recall, the light started out by Paninos, then got moved to Superlake. Maybe they're going to keep moving it to keep us guessing? bounce

That's where it was before... and it's still a stupid spot for a traffic light.

Warning: watch for passholes skirting the light at Panino by cutting through the parking lot/lateral and t-boning you as you get ready to enter the intersection with a green light.

Whew! And here's me thinking all the problems in the real world had all been resolved. That's why I read this forum, it's a guide to things not to do as I age (Admittedly, not very gracefully). Now for something really scary...

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/03/23/who-doesnt-read-books-in-america/

To say nothing of those reading only a book or two or three. And these people vote, or not.

Jajaja........ "Passholes"!! Good one. They probably should have removed the other light instead so at least the remaining light can help those turning left.

They would have been better served to have moved, or put, the semaforo at Ramon Velazquez and the Carretera (where the Sunshine restaurant is) as there is more traffic entering and leaving there than at Jesus Garcia.
They definitely needed to leave a light at SuperLake as that is the main artery for traffic leaving SAT, as well as SL.

Exactly right, Slainte. But then, smart or better serving have never been valid adjectives uses to describe decisions made by this municipal government.

Probably was done at the State or Federal level and sometimes the "NOT", the sharpest knives in the drawer get the engineer's ear first.  The squeaky wheel is not always the best wheel.

Getting out of SL is a royal pain now. I wouldn't want to think about trying to turn left, just trying to turn right was bad enough.

When leaving SuperLake, just continue on the lateral heading east until you get to the light at Panino's. Then you can make your turn, left or right with the light.

Yup. I agree Sue. It's just that easy.
Now, if the powers that be would CLOSE off the middle entrance to that lateral and make a FLASHING green light for those entering the lateral, from the east, in front of Fenix Real Estate... the traffic might actually not have a reason to stop.

Gee, Sue. That will take all the sport out of it!
