7-15-webThe purpose of this project is to Improve traffic safety and operations at intersections, by improving traffic flow, and minimize congestion on Highway 101. A pedestrian trail will be located on the south side of County Rd 144 between Marie Ave and Rogers Middle School, and on the north side of County Rd 144 between James Rd and Rogers Middle School.



Southbound 101 opening

Current Status

Construction continues as North and Southbound traffic was moved onto the new Highway 101 during the evening of September 25. Traffic is commuting in a single lane for north and southbound as crews continue to work on portions of the roadway. Therefore, the bypass will no longer be in use, and will be removed as crews are beginning Stage 3 of the project. Crews will continue to construct the Diverging Diamond Interchange on County Road 144, and underneath the Highway 101 bridge. All businesses are accessible via the detour for the duration of the project.
