|Oak Hill Parkway: Project Update
The Oak Hill Parkway team is making great strides so far in 2023. Due to the need for additional bridge and roadway construction, there will be changes coming to the William Cannon Drive intersection starting this month.
- Crews will begin to remove the current curb-separated left-turn lanes on eastbound and westbound US 290 that drivers use to turn onto northbound and southbound William Cannon Drive. Barrels will be in place to delineate traffic lanes.
- In March the US 290 and William Cannon Drive intersection will change from a “continuous flow” intersection to a “typical” intersection. This means the location of the left-turn lanes will be shifted next to the thru-lanes.
- The US 290 and William Cannon Drive intersection will remain a “typical” intersection when Oak Hill Parkway is complete.
These traffic shifts will give crews the space to finish the new William Cannon Drive lanes north of US 290 and continue construction of the new US 290 frontage roads and new US 290 mainlane bridges in the area.
