This project proposes permanent median modifications to reduce conflict points and improve safety at the intersections of US 41 with 16th Avenue E and 61st Street E (Palm View Road).  The proposed safety improvements will prohibit left turns from the side streets onto US 41. This traffic will be required to turn right onto US 41 and make a U-Turn at one of the adjacent intersections. The pavement will be milled and resurfaced from north of US 19 to north of 69th street E/73rd St. E (Erie Road). 
The project design will be completed in December 2024 and construction is expected to start in Summer 2025.
