What is being built?
This project will widen the 2.1-mile section of Route 11/460 (West Main Street) that starts just west of Salem and extends to Route 830 (Technology Drive). The road is being widened from three lanes to four lanes with a raised median.
The project entails widening the current two-lane section of Route 11/460 to a four-lane divided highway with a raised median and turn lanes.
Work also will include constructing a 44-foot long bridge over Little Bear Rock Branch, adding sidewalks to tie into existing pedestrian routes around Fort Lewis Elementary School and providing a paved shoulder to accommodate pedestrian and bicycle traffic. In addition, the existing traffic signals at Alleghany Drive and Daugherty Drive will be replaced.
Widening the road will eliminate a bottleneck on Route 11/460 between four lane sections.
