The closure of the center lane at this location will be permanent as the center turn lane will be eliminated in the final roadway configuration and a concrete median will be installed in this area. The closure of the center lane is being implemented at this time for safety. This will head off accidents and traffic congestion in this area by preventing vehicles and trucks from attempting to make left turns into businesses as well as trucks from trying to turn left onto the Bypass on-ramp.
