What type of work is occurring on U.S. 250?
Work to enhance the intersection of Milan Road (U.S. 250) and East Strub Road is underway.
"The work that is going on is utility relocation for the intersection improvement project," state transportatio spokeswoman Christine Myers said. "This is a $1.6 million safety project to add turn lanes and improve signals at the intersection of U.S. 250 and Strub Road. Smith Paving and Excavating, Inc. of Norwalk is the contractor on the project. This project will start in the next few months."
The project's seperate from but jibes with a $32 million enhancement project on U.S. 250 from Cleveland to East Bogart roads. This past summer, state transportation officials announced a $32 million enhancement construction project along U.S. 250.
Slated to begin in May 2015, the 4-mile-long project — spanning from U.S. 6 to East Bogart Road — aims to:
•Add sidewalks on both sides of the street.
•Create new turn lanes at busy intersections.
•Widen intersections and curbs.
•Make traffic signs more visible.
Work will occur at night, with at least one lane in each direction remaining open.
