Just about one year ago, drivers on Maryland Route 3 were introduce to the new traffic pattern known as the "Michigan U."
The system offered a new way to turn off of Waugh Chapel Road and Reidel Avenue onto Route 3, and has been the subject of much discussion.
In the past year, many motorists have cursed its existence, calling it confusing, dangerous, or just plain annoying. While others say it has offered an improvement over the previous pattern and has actually made things safer.
"It’s a change for people who don’t see it everyday, and it’s very unusual for people who haven’t experienced it before,” State Highway traffic engineer Lee Starkloff said at a community meeting in March.
In other words, Starkloff said, people will get used to it over time.
But after a year, do you like any more or less?
Are you accustomed to the Michigan U traffic pattern, or do you still wish things never changed? Sound off in the comments below.
