Additional features of the proposed project:

  • A raised concrete barrier is proposed along Route 1 to separate northbound and southbound traffic.
  • Right turn lanes from Route 1 onto Route 606 would be lengthened to meet current standards.
  • The addition of a northbound left turn lane into the shopping center to the west will be considered.
  • A new traffic signal would be added at the intersection.
