Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

This project will establish a master plan for the Old Potash Highway corridor from approximately North Road to Webb Road, including intersections to the north and south of Old Potash Highway.  The interaction between the various traffic features is complex, making it necessary to create an overall master plan to ensure that the individual projects will function together and address other safety issues in these areas.  It is anticipated that this plan will include widening and reconfiguring Old Potash Highway, signal and geometric improvements at each intersection, access management throughout the corridor, and probably improvements to the north and south of the Old potash Highway corridor.  Improvements are needed to allow the corridor to safely handle the ever increasing traffic in this area.
