About this project
Converted an eastbound bypass lane on Hwy 97 into a dedicated left turn lane. The left turn lane addition allows motorists a safer option when traveling EB on Hwy 97 to NB 11th St.
Removing left turning vehicles from through traffic lane provides a place to wait and yield to oncoming traffic. The project improved safety by reducing the potential for future rear-ends crashes.
Summary of work
- Reconstructed existing bypass lane shoulder
- Widened road for new shoulder
- Resurfaced existing pavement
