A Notice of Willingness for this proposed project was posted from October 6, 2020, through October 20, 2020.
This proposed project will enhance capacity and improve traffic flow by eliminating the right turn lane bump-out areas along Route 3 westbound between Route 639 (Bragg Road) and Chamber Drive. This will allow this lane to be used by through traffic and by traffic turning right.
On Route 3 eastbound, a concrete island at the right turn lane to Mall Drive will be modified, and the right lane will become a shared through travel and right turn lane. Dual right turn lanes from northbound Mall Drive to Route 3 eastbound will be built, controlled by a dedicated traffic signal.
