This project will extend the existing southbound right turn lane on Route 1 Business (Lafayette Boulevard) from Lee Street to Harrison Road.
This will improve capacity and reduce congestion for southbound traffic turning onto Harrison Road.
Left turns from southbound Lafayette Boulevard onto Laurel Avenue are currently restricted due to construction activity, with posted detour signs. This turn restriction is expected to last through early May 2022.
Periodically, left turns from northbound Lafayette Boulevard onto Lee Street will be restricted for the safety of crews in the work zone. Signs will be posted and uncovered when this left turn restriction is in place. The signs will be covered when it is not in effect.
Improves capacity and reduces delay for southbound traffic turning right onto Harrison Road.
