Intersection of Rice Lake Road and Airport Road Re-Opens
Construction was aimed at easing traffic congestion and improving safety
The T-shaped intersection of Rice Lake Road and Airport Road re-opened to traffic today.
The intersection now features a “continuous green T signal,” along with a median and better street lighting, all of which is aimed at easing traffic congestion and improving safety.
Vehicles traveling north on Rice Lake Road will always have a green light now with the new traffic signal. Vehicles traveling south on Rice Lake, or turning in either direction to or from Airport Road will have a standard traffic signal.
The project, which totaled $790,000, was funded in part by Transportation Sales Tax revenue.
Minor finishing details will continue over the next several weeks. Motorists are asked to slow down and use caution whenever workers are present.
