DOWNTOWN — A Downtown intersection near Millennium Park now has turn signals.
Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd) told constituents Friday that left and right-turn arrows were recently installed at Upper Columbus Drive and Upper Randolph Street in a bid to ease traffic congestion.

Reilly said the move came at the request of neighbors, who said only one or two cars previously could turn on a green light due to pedestrian traffic. Signs prohibiting turns on red (sans arrows) are still in effect.
The turn arrows were paid for by Reilly's ward infrastructure budget.
