Meridian – Construction on the Ustick Road and Ten Mile Road intersection is now complete and the new traffic signal was put into operation this afternoon. The new signal replaces a four-way stop and will increase safety and reduce delays for the 17,000 motorists that currently use the intersection each day.
Improved Ustick and Ten Mile intersection to reduce delays; move more traffic
The improvement project, which started in May, also added a left and right turn lane to each intersection approach and bike lanes. An additional through travel lane was constructed on each approach and will be utilized when improvements are made in the future along Ten Mile and Ustick. Currently, a project to widen Ten Mile between Cherry and Ustick to five lanes is planned for 2015. The future road project will also add curb, gutter, sidewalk and bike lanes.
The $1.5 million intersection project also included storm drain work and upgrades to the water and sewer systems for the City of Meridian.
