US 42 Westbound Safety Improvements at I-71/75

WHAT

is the scope of the project?

The bridge that carries US 42 westbound traffic over I-71/75 has been widened to improve safety, ease congestion, and provide new pedestrian access.

 

The bridge has been widened to the south to provide additional space for traffic moving westbound on US 42 and turning left onto I-71/75 southbound. It also was widened to the north to provide a sidewalk from Dream St. to Heights Blvd.

WHY

are these improvements taking place?

Before these improvements, traffic turning left from US 42 westbound to I-71/75 southbound backed up into the through lanes of travel during peak travel times. Providing additional left turn space for this movement eases congestion through this area, and a new sidewalk supports safer pedestrian access.

will work begin and end?

much will the project cost?
