Lane Changes on Washington St.
Mercer to Veterans
Later today Washington St. will have new temporary pavement markings with a three lane configuration instead of the former four vehicle lanes. The new configuration includes one travel lane in each direction with a center two way left turn lane from Mercer Ave. to St. Joesph Drive. There will be new dedicated right turn lanes for eastbound Washington St. at Mercer and for westbound Washington St. at St. Joseph Drive.
When the permanent pavement markings are installed in the next few days, there will also be dedicated bike lanes in each direction from Mercer Ave. to St. Joseph Drive.
Motorists are encouraged to slow down in work zones and be attentive to changes in travel patterns.
