You will see a few less dual-turning lanes in Sherwood Park.
 
Intersection changes are taking place Strathcona County as some dual left-hand turn lanes will be reduced to a single-turn lane.
 
"This way vehicles can continue to turn left while the light is on the straight through green phase, rather than being restricted to just the flashing arrow phase," said Ryan Anders, Strathcona County's manager of transportation planning, engineering and safety.
 
Construction at most the notable intersections include turning onto Lakeland Drive from Sherwood Drive and Cloverbar Drive.
 
"I think in the end what we're doing will improve traffic flow. People will be moving more often and they won't be looking at a red light with nobody coming at them and being unable to turn left because of those dual left turn lanes," added Anders.
 
Concrete work is done at most intersections and line painting will be done in the near future.
 
"Where we need the two left turn lanes, they're all staying in."
