Left turn to nowhere
This is the repaved block of Calhoun Street between Jefferson and Washington boulevards.
Instead of a turn lane that directs you into the breakfast buffet at the Hilton, perhaps the city could consider a center-of-the-road refuge island for hotel-goers crossing the street? Such an island would typically be used on wider streets, but visitors would likely be carting a lot of suitcases, making such an island useful.
Leave the center lane for cars coming from the north and turning left into the parking garage. Then build the refuge just to the south of the garage entrance.
It’d certainly help welcome visitors to Fort Wayne.
