In mid-November, the Department of Transportation proceeded with a safety improvement project near I.S. 73. The following are improvements included as part of the project:
• A portion of 54th Ave was converted to a one-way eastbound corridor.
• A curb extension was painted at 69th Place and 69th Lane
• Crosswalks at 69th Place and 69th Lane were reconfigured
• U-Turns from 69th Lane to 69th Place are now prohibited
There have been complaints of traffic backups and we will be monitoring the situation and discussing possible tweaks to the project with DOT.
