This project improved safety at the intersection of Independence Boulevard and North Franklin Street by adjusting turn lane lengths and island locations. Storm drains and pedestrian accommodations were installed at the intersection. The project began in June 2017 and was completed in fall 2017.
The project is part of a larger effort to improve use of the Franklin Street corridor. This includes eventually extending the Huckleberry Trail to the Independence Boulevard and North Franklin Street intersection. The Town is also currently in the planning stages of reworking the intersection at Cambria Street and North Franklin Street to enhance safety, traffic flow and add pedestrian accommodations.
