Overview and timeline

The study kicked off late 2020 and will include several public input opportunities through 2021.

Road and access conditions have been studied through March and included traffic counts, traffic forecasts as well as safety concerns within the Hwy 25 study area. Read July's online project update.

Alternative recommendations will be made by early fall 2021. Considerations include use of turn lanes, access management, sightlines on curves, shoulders, pedestrian crossings and overall safety along the Hwy 25 corridor.

The final study will be published in fall 2021.
