Main lanes to change

Traffic slated to switch on Tuesday

October 30, 2006

Changes on Main Street await drivers as work on the multimillion-dollar project progresses.

Weather permitting on Tuesday, Oct. 31, traffic on Main Street will be switched to the outermost lanes from Seven-Mile Creek Bridge to Olive Street.

Ken Miller, the city's Main Street project liaison, in a news release Wednesday, said Main Street traffic will continue to move in one lane each direction on the westernmost (southbound) lane, and on the easternmost (northbound) lane. The traffic pattern shift is being made to accommodate construction work on medians and is tentatively scheduled to remain in effect until mid- to late November, weather permitting.

Also Tuesday, motorists on Main Street will be able to make left-hand turns at several locations where those turns were previously prohibited.

Northbound motorists will be able to turn left (west) at Ida Street, but Miller urged caution since there will not be a left-turn only traffic signal at the intersection of Main and Ida.

Southbound Main Street motorists will also be able to turn left (east) at Olive Street.
