|Construction Cost:||$1.2 Million|
This project will construct improvements at the intersection of SE Abshier Boulevard (U.S. 27/U.S. 301/U.S. 441) and SE Hames Road to enhance safety and operations for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. The project proposes to create left turn lanes in each direction on SE Abshier Boulevard west of Hames Road with a raised concrete traffic separator in the middle. The free-flow right turn lane from westbound SE Hames Road to northbound SE Abshier Boulevard will also be replaced with a new right turn lane that will be controlled by the traffic signal. The traffic signals will be reconstructed and upgraded with new signal poles. Other planned safety improvements include adding buffered bicycle lanes along SE Abshier Boulevard, realigning the crosswalks, upgrading intersection lighting, constructing a new sidewalk to fill in gaps, and reconstructing curb ramps to comply with current Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards.
