The purpose of this project is to enhance the safety of the intersection of State Road 472 and Minnesota Avenue through the installation of a raised directional median island. These intersection modifications will restrict the incoming and outgoing side streets to right turn movements only but will allow left turn movements downstream via a U-turn. U-turn aprons will be installed at U-turn locations within the project limits to accommodate the turning movements and provide an acceleration lane for larger vehicles. Pavement markings, striping and signage will be updated to reflect the new conditions, and audible pavement markings will be installed on the outside lanes to minimize lane departures.
