Widening of West Ridge Boulevard to 5 lanes has begun. When the project is done people will be able to drive through from Highway 12 to University Avenue with little delay.
The $2.7 million project also involves installation of an asphalt multi-use trail, storm sewers with new catch basins and the relocation of traffic signals at two intersections. This is the last phase of roadway improvements for the area including work on Highway 12 and Monarch Drive.
