Beginning today, the eastbound traffic pattern at the intersection of 1st Street West at 2nd Avenue SW (in front of Bill’s Pizza & Smokehouse) will change.
The right-turn lane will become the normal eastbound through-traffic, right-turn-on-red will be permitted.
The bump-out lane or the existing eastbound lane that has traffic jogging a little left and then a little right through the intersection will become a normal center turn lane.
The change was determined necessary to improve safety at this intersection for motor vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclist. Appropriate cautions will be in-place at this location for the first few weeks to help in the transition.
Please pass this information to your employees, contractors, associates, family and friends.
