These intersections were identified in the Milton Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) as priority/key intersection improvements.
This phase of the project consists of public involvement and concept development for intersection improvements.
A Draft Concept Report is being finalized.
A Public Information Open House was held on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Milton City Hall Council Chambers.
Both intersections are currently controlled by four-way stop signs which are causing undesirable delays and congestion for drivers during the morning and afternoon peak rush hours. The City of Milton and its consultant, Pond & Company, have worked together to study the traffic at each intersection and to develop a list of alternative concepts that have the potential to improve conditions at each location. Four alternatives were selected for study:
- Alternative 1 – No Build
- Alternative 2 – Retain the four-way stop sign control and add right turn lanes
- Alternative 3 – Reconstruct the intersections into roundabouts
- Alternative 4 – Install a traffic signal at each intersection and widen to include appropriate turn lanes
Considerations for selection of the preferred alternative(s) will include impacts to vehicle delays, impacts to existing land parcels, and maintenance and construction costs.
