From county road to urban thoroughfare
Improvements included upgrading the street from two lanes with an open ditch to a five-lane roadway with curbs and gutters.
The intersection at Urish was expanded from a single-lane to multi-lane roundabout. Mike Stewart, PEC's project engineer observes, "The multi-lane roundabout was a great application for this intersection because of the high volume of left turns that happen there. Multi-lane roundabouts aren't that common—the city's approach is very forward-thinking."
