3rd St Improvements (Murray Rd to Pryor Rd)
This project will construct turn lanes and a traffic signal at the intersection of Murray Road and 3rd Street. The project also includes widening of 3rd Street east of Pryor Road to Murray Road to complete the 4/5 lane section with sidewalk on each side of the road.
This project will enhance safety and operations by improving the 3rd Street corridor and the intersection of 3rd Street and Murray Road. Traffic signal warrants have been previously met at the intersection of 3rd Street and Murray which currently operates as an all-way stop. Left-turn lanes are necessary at this intersection for improved safety and operation in consideration of anticipated traffic growth within the next 10 years. Left-turn lanes at this intersection are needed for efficient traffic management under signal control. Widening of 3rd Street to a four or five lane section consistent with the design of 3rd Street west of Pryor Road and 3rd Street east of Murray Road is recommended in the Thoroughfare Master Plan to address current and projected traffic demand at an adequate level of service. Sidewalk connections should be provided for pedestrian access along the corridor. 3rd Street is a major arterial road.
