Can somebody please review the lights that were installed by the I-57 interchange. First the lights appear to change based upon a timer rather than if somebody is sitting there waiting to make a turn. Seems to me that after all of the work that went into making the upgrades to the bridge and to the intersection I cannot believe that a pressure plate was not used to help keep traffic flowing. The other issue is making a right turn to get on I-57 North all of the lights are red EXCEPT for a green light for those getting off of I-57 and making a right hand turn on Hwy 50 North. Not sure why that is even necessary to have a stand alone light for a right hand turn.
I get to this section of Kankakee right around 4:30 AM and the real issue that you have is that people are simply running the rights because the amount of time waiting for the lights to turn when there isn't anybody there to justify the light changes.
