Lengths and Limits
This project widened 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 was widened from three lanes to four lanes with a raised median in an effort to eliminate a bottleneck on Route 11/460 between four lane sections.
The project entailed 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 included 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 were replaced.
