Construction on a new raised median and traffic signal on South Duff Avenue will begin on Monday, May 8, and continue for at least three weeks. While two-way traffic will be maintained through this phase, motorists should be aware that traffic will be funneled to one outside lane in each direction. The reduced lanes will stretch from the north end of the Squaw Creek Bridge to South Fifth Street. There will be no left turns allowed.
The South Duff Avenue improvements include a raised median between South Fifth Street and Squaw Creek Bridge, a new traffic signal approximately one-eighth mile south of South Fifth Street, and improvements to nearby driveways. Shared used path access will be maintained during this phase of the project, although access may be restricted in future phases.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternate travel routes during this project as delays should be expected during the construction.
The South Duff Avenue project is part of the 2016/17 U.S. 69 Improvements Program. The installation of the raised median and traffic signal are expected to increase safety, reduce collisions, and improve travel flow.
