Topic: WASHINGTON STREET EXIT

Kenri Avery

Comment: Concerned with how Washington St. exit will impact the community. Will this improvement create a more congestive issue for South Blvd., Terrace and 13th/Eddie Robinson? Response: DOTD has not studied the impacts of increased traffic on other areas.

Comment: I was very impressed with the presentation and the maps. I like the overall approach to the project. I do wonder why the Nicholson/Highland exit doesn’t include Washington Street and completely do away with the Washington street exit as it exists or is planned. Washington Street is only 6 blocks down Highland Road. If […]

What are the traffic counts per day using the Washington Street Exit? Response: Thank you for your comment. When completed, the traffic study for this project will […]

Save the funds and move any traffic to Dalrymple as the access point. Response: Traffic Analysis shows that consolidated Washington Street/Dalrymple Drive Interchange will […]

Comment: Adding lanes going up to the bridge, which can’t be widened, creates a bottleneck at the approach. coming off the bridge into BR is a problem, so remove Washington exit (Dalrymple is right there and Terrace will serve i110) and make 2 dedicated lanes off the bridge. Response: Traffic Analysis shows that two lanes […]
