Cleveland Road in Huron to see improvements

Entering and exiting at Fabens Park in Huron rivals the frustration of a slow Internet connection or a dropped cell phone call.

It's flat-out irritating.

Recognizing the inconvenience, Huron officials devised a strategy to alleviate motorists' dilemmas whenever approaching the problematic corridor.

City council approved plans calling for two U-turns, or a Michigan left, constructed in the grassy median separating Cleveland Road (U.S. 6) east and West near Fabens Park.

Officials expect crews will begin and finish the project in 2013.

The city will pay about $22,000 of the $272,000 cost. The remaining $250,000 came from a state grant.

Ideally, the U-turns strive to save drivers both gas mileage and reduce the number of migraine headaches this mind-blogging traffic layout poses.

"This will facilitate direct access for both east- and west-bound traffic," Huron city manager Andy White said, who spearheaded the design work.
