The intersection of Highways 11 and 20 just got more dangerous. Highway crews have been building snowbanks on the east side of the intersection further reducing visibility east and west. The snowbanks on the north side between the four lanes do not help either.
East travelling vehicles turning north onto Highway 20 are already sitting in a depression in the road and the snowbank to the east makes west moving vehicles harder to see. Even west moving traffic has difficulty seeing vehicles in the turning lane.
As I approached the intersection, travelling west, I could only see the windshield of a waiting car — no lights and no car body.
Safety mandates clearing away the snowbanks and elevating the turning lane. What’s going to happen when the snowbanks get higher and the road gets icy?
