The current signals are to the west and allow a little bit of runway, so it might not be as big an issue.
If the Highway 95 intersection ever needed lights, the lights would only impact the Eastbound TCH traffic. With the protected left entrance lane, there's no need to stop Westbound traffic. The steeper grade isn't right next to the intersection so it shouldn't be too hard on trucks going up. Compared to something like this intersection in Medicine Hat which is hell for truckers, it's a piece of cake.
