The other potential enhancement involved an alley that went behind a small mall. Taking this alley reduces traffic interactions significantly, albeit at a cost of slightly greater travel distance. I've not decided if this alley will become a regular commute route feature, but it is certainly more straightforward than either cutting through a parking lot or dealing with a long stack of cars at a traffic light.
And, I found some more. But I didn't get any photos of those enhancements. The moral of this story is: even a route you know well can sometimes get even better, or at least there are things to try and things to do.
