FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Public Works has authorized Hunter Chase & Associates to begin nighttime construction of safety improvements at the intersections of Battlefield Road and Campbell Avenue and Battlefield Road and National Avenue beginning Monday, Aug. 28 through Nov. 18.

The project includes the modification of the right turn islands to improve driver’s angle as they complete their turns, implementation of rumble strips and paint striping to adjust the turning radius on all right turn lanes, installation of new audible pedestrian push buttons and ADA improvements.

Construction work will take place primarily at night and involve various lane closures. Motorists are asked to use caution when driving through the construction zones.

Total cost of these intersection safety improvements is $248,579. This project is funded through the voter-approved 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax Turning Lane and Safety Improvements program.
