Drivers Now Have Protected Left Turn at Barnes and Indian Trail

Good news for those of you who drive in the Indian Trail neighborhood. New pentagon-shaped traffic signal heads have been installed on all four approaches at the intersection of Barnes and Indian Trail Road. The heads will be operational starting around 9 a.m. Thursday morning.

The signals will provide a protected left turn phase on all approaches.  Protected left-turns were requested at both the Barnes and Indian Trail intersection and Shawnee and Indian Trail intersection by the neighborhood council.  A traffic study completed by the City of Spokane determined that the conditions supported the protected turns. 

Signal installation at the Shawnee and Indian Trail intersection is underway now.
