Division and Van Buren looking SE

The covered-up sign is a left-only lane-use sign, which I saw last night. If the plan is to use a flashing-yellow for northbound yet permit left turns for southbound, they'd have to use a lead-left for the left turn signal, because a lag left would cause a red trap situation. And somehow, if the Van Buren phase is skipped, it would still lead to a potential trap situation. If the engineers would just install the flashing-yellow left-turn signal here, they would avoid a red-trap situation here altogether. (The current signal bans left-turns for SB now because of the lag left NB.)
