Project Details
Work Type: Safety Study
Phase: Design

The project  proposes median modifications to reduce conflict points and increase safety at the intersection of SR 60 at Walk in Water Road/Boy Scout Camp Road. Changes include converting the full median opening to a two-way directional median opening. The proposed safety improvement will remove crossing movements of SR 60 from Walk in Water Road and Boy Scout Camp Road and require motorists to make right turns onto SR 60 with U-turns at the adjacent median openings.  Left turns onto Walk in Water Road and Boy Scout Camp Road will continue to be permitted.

A public meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 28, 2023. This meeting will present information and collect input on the proposed improvement.
