Work to add dedicated turn lanes at the intersection of Covell and Coltrane roads begins Aug. 29 and will cause periodic lane and full closures to sections during the project. This interim improvement will alleviate congestion until the full intersection expansion is addressed with future projects.
Dedicated left turn lanes will be added to three of the sides of that busy intersection – the east, west, and north sides – beginning with work on the east side of the intersection on Aug. 29. When complete, the expansion will provide both a through lane and dedicated left turn lane to the three corners of the intersection.
Work will be done one side at a time to help mitigate the impact to traffic flow, but motorists are asked to be aware of the project and adjust their routes and schedules accordingly. Signs are in place and work to expand that portion of the intersection, add the dedicated turn lane, and ensure the integrity of the drainage and infrastructure is expected to take up to 10 days for each side, with cooperative weather.
Work will begin on the west and north sides of that four-way stop as soon as work on the east side of the intersection is complete. Each section is expected to take 10 days once work begins, with cooperative weather.
9/7/22 UPDATE: This intersection expansion project is now scheduled to begin Thursday, September 8, 2022.
9/15/22 UPDATE: Work on the east side of the Covell and Coltrane roads intersection is nearly complete and will open soon. Starting the morning of Sept. 20, work will begin on sections of the intersection on both the NORTH side of the intersection on Coltrane and the WEST side of the intersection on Covell. Those entrances to the intersection will be closed to through traffic. It is expected to take 10 days to complete the work, with cooperative weather. Traffic will be open at the entrance to the north side of the intersection on Coltrane and the east side of the intersection on Covell. Drivers are asked to be aware of the impacts and adjust their routes and schedules accordingly.
