Route 220 U-about Slated for Fall Completion

September 11th, 2013 by WCBC Radio


Even though a re-design of the project was completed following citizen complaints- some of those who have traveled the opened portion of the U-about at U.S. Route 220 and Greene Street still anticipated some problems. Stephen Bucy of the State Highway Administration, tells WCBC News that construction of the redesigned U-about won’t be completed until late fall.  Use of a partially constructed U-about was abandoned about a year ago after southbound tractor-trailer drivers and motorists complained….


He said that while some complaints have continued, he is confident all of the concerns will be addressed when the project is completed.  Changes in construction increased the cost of the project from about $3,246,000 to about $3,770,000.
