Updated US95 Alternatives Posted On KMPO Site

If you haven't checked the KMPO site lately, the updated 'alternatives' for improvements to US95 have recently been posted.

KMPO is teaming up with David Evans and Associates to conduct a 'US95 Access Management Study' to improve the flow of traffic on US95 and address growing safety concerns at unsignalized intersections, while still providing access to the highway and businesses along the highway.

The primary goal of the study is to evaluate low-cost strategies to manage and balance access to US95 from adjacent streets. The intent is to identify measures which can be implemented within the next 5 years.

For more information on the study and to view the alternatives under consideration, or to express your opinion on which alternative should be utilized, go to the project web page.
