Traffic moves pretty smoothly on Howard at Clark when travelling westbound. Not so eastbound. Part its because of the Marathon Gas station with the left turners coming and going.
The real reason this side of Howard is a mess is the lack of street markings and the missing right turn sign. Note the naked black pole. Observing the natural history of signs in the city one notices that first the sign hangs upside down for few months, then its gone.
Since these photos were taken in July the corner sidewalk was replaced. But the right turn sign and street markings are still missing. If you look closely you can see a ghost outline of ONLY.
