The Buskirk Avenue project which started construction in May of 2013 has completed the First Stage of the project. Two lanes of southbound Buskirk Avenue are now open to traffic.
Traffic heading to Buskirk Avenue – southbound (towards Best Buy) should “Keep Right” and use the new widened section of Buskirk Avenue. Changeable Message Boards have been installed on Buskirk Avenue (southbound) near Lamkin Lane directing traffic continuing onto Buskirk Avenue to “Keep Right”.
Traffic heading towards Hookston Road – eastbound should stay left and continue to use the current lane configuration through Elmira Drive to Hookston Road.
There are two new shopping center driveways (one entrance and one exit) on Buskirk Avenue near Marshalls store that are now open. To access the new entrance to the shopping center use the new single lane widened section of Buskirk Avenue. Also the southern access to the shopping center is open to all shopping center customers.
New decorative street and pedestrian light poles within the new widened section of Buskirk Avenue have been energized.
The new roadway traffic configuration is temporary, and will be adjusted early next year with the next Stage of construction.
