Project Details
Work Type: Safety Study
Phase: Design

The project proposes median modifications to reduce conflict points and increase safety at the intersection of US 98 at Lyle Parkway. Changes include converting the full median opening to a two-way directional median opening. The proposed safety improvement will remove crossing movements of US 98 from Lyle Parkway and require motorists to make right turns onto US 98 with U-turns at the adjacent median openings.  Left turns onto Lyle Parkway will continue to be permitted.
