    As someone that crosses Chicago at Hoyne regularly, I’m so excited to finally have a light at that intersection! Despite the long time to get it put in place (the article refers to a request going back 8 years), I’m glad it’s here. No more racing against speeding cars and waiting forever for a driver to take mercy and allow kids and strollers to cross, only to get halfway through the intersection and wait again for drivers from the other intersection to acknowledge your presence and stop. New configuration also added a dedicated left turn lane for eastbound Chicago drivers wanting to turn North onto Hoyne.
