Crews will begin work Dec. 2 on the installation of a new traffic signal at Heritage Parkway and Commerce Drive, the street that connects to the U.S. 287 southbound frontage road.
The project also includes concrete panel replacement and curb radius improvements at the northwest corner of Heritage and Commerce.
“Improving the curb radius will provide a better turning radius for 18-wheelers that use the Heritage Parkway exit to access the industrial park,” said David Boski, assistant director of public works. “The new signals will improvement traffic flow and safety at the intersection, particularly during peak times.”
The first phase, which will include the pavement and curb improvements, is expected to take about four weeks. During this phase of the project traffic will be reduced to one lane on both Commerce and Heritage at that intersection.
Traffic signal installation will begin in early January and take approximately two months. There will be intermittent lane closures during this time.
