West 8th Avenue / West Main Street - Left Turn Lane Improvements
This project removed the westbound left-turn pocket into the Jackson’s gas station business area, which allowed for the extension of the eastbound left-turn pocket at W 8th Avenue and the westbound left-turn pockets at SR 503. In addition, flashing yellow turn arrows were added on West Main at W 8th Avenue. The goal of this project was to improve operations at both the SR 503 and W 8th Avenue intersections with W Main Street. The project was completed in September of 2020 at a cost of $160,000. Funding for the project was through the 2015 Connecting Washington funding package.
