For Immediate Release

Median Work on Battlefield Begins August 2

Beginning Tuesday, August 2, 2011, work will begin on center median modifications along several miles of Battlefield Road between Ingram Mill Road and Scenic Avenue.

The median modification includes reducing the size of islands at some signalized intersections. This will allow for improved turning radiuses and increased sight distance for motorists on Battlefield Road.

Contractors will be working in the left turn lanes. Motorists are advised to be aware and watch for workers. Interruptions to traffic are expected to be minor.

The estimated completion of the project is Sept. 2, 2011, weather permitting. This project is funded by the ¼-Cent Sales Tax for Capital Improvements.
