During the project, traffic will be maintained using lane closures with traffic regulators and a directional detour during some stages.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 94 jobs.
This project will increase safety for motorists and extend the lifespan of the roadway. Wider shoulders will increase safety for nonmotorized users. Traffic signal improvements at the Three Mile Road intersection will enhance safety.
