Project features include:
- Multi-use paths, wider bike lanes, a new bus stop, lower speed limits, and enhanced pedestrian and bike crossings throughout the project area. These features will allow everyone safe and efficient access to the area.
- Roundabouts where U.S. 20 meets Robal Lane and Cooley Road.
- A realignment of U.S. 97 to the east along the railroad tracks that will let highway traffic move freely through the area.
- The existing U.S. 97 highway will become business and local access focused, acting as an extension of 3rd Street.
Project teams are finalizing designs and getting ready to start construction work. Motorists may begin to see minor traffic impacts this fall, mostly at night. More significant traffic impacts along U.S. 20 will begin as early as February 2023, while impacts along U.S. 97 will not begin until later in 2023 and continue throughout the life of the project. All work is scheduled to be fully complete by December 2024.
