Getting There: Will Albany add left-turn arrows at the Harriman State Office Campus?

Q: I’m wondering if there are any plans to add a left-turn arrow at the intersection of the Harriman State Office campus and Western Avenue. People traveling east on Western Avenue encounter significant back ups at rush hour now with more state employees being moved back to those offices, especially when cars are waiting to turn into the Harriman campus. Turn arrows at that signal would be really helpful and have worked well at Manning and Western.
