The 70th Street & Dodge Street intersection currently has a median break providing full access to/from Dodge Street. The intersection has a significantly higher number of crashes than the citywide average at similar intersections. Given the low traffic volumes of the movements involving the crash patterns, the rate of those vehicles getting in a crash are significantly higher.
The project would accomplish the following:
Access can be maintained to all areas via other existing routes for all directions of travel. Based on the recent traffic counts, the amount of diverted traffic is low and would have little impact on existing operations at nearby intersections.
Construction during Spring/Summer 2023
