Project Details
Work Type: Intersection Construction
Phase: Construction
Length: 0.18 miles
Construction Cost: $3.2 Million
Project Start: Spring 2023
Est. Completion: Late 2023

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.
