Fields-Ertel Road Westbound Right Turn Lane

Under Construction

Construction Timing:

March 2017 through August 2017

 

Project Information:

A new right turn lane will be built for traffic moving westbound on Fields-Ertel Road and turning right onto the northbound on-ramp to I-71.

The new lane will begin at Royal Point Drive to the northbound I-71 on-ramp and connect with the existing dedicated right turn lane that allows traffic to turn right onto Mason-Montgomery Road.

This project will also add a new northbound lane on Gregory Road from Governor’s Way to Fields-Ertel Road, feeding into the northbound on-ramp for I-71.

Project Benefits:

The additional turn lane on Fields-Ertel will provide a dedicated lane for traffic moving westbound on Fields-Ertel Road and turning right onto the northbound on-ramp to I-71.

On Gregory Road, there is currently only one lane that continues straight to access the northbound I-71 on-ramp. After this project is completed, there will be two lanes that feed onto the interstate, therefore allowing more traffic to move through the signal.

This will help congestion in the Fields-Ertel & Mason-Montgomery Road area by providing a more continuous movement for turning and through traffic. This project builds off of the completed work that has already taken place at the Fields-Ertel & Mason-Montgomery Road interchange. You can read more about this work at AdvancingFieldsErtel.com.
