Generally traffic planning like that is sadly driven by death statistics. You literally need X amount of deaths or serious injuries before you get the upgrade. I'd just eliminate left turns at cook and view, it's insane trying to turn left onto cook from there when things are busy, I've seen way too many close calls and minor accidents there. Go down Yates or Fort instead and use the light.

Exactly! No left turns Mon-Fri 7-6 makes sense.

Was the bike on Cook and he hit the car or was it the other way?

That’s terrible that the person died .
