According to the release, the $776,000 project includes the construction of a new auxiliary lane from I-35 to a new crossover located about 1,200 feet north of the current Berry Creek crossover. A right-turn lane for Berry Creek Drive also will be constructed.
Once complete, traffic wishing to turn left on Berry Creek Drive will U-turn at the new crossover and merge over to the new turn lane to access Berry Creek Drive. Berry Creek Drive traffic wishing to head north on Hwy. 195 will turn right on Hwy. 195 and use a new acceleration lane to merge with traffic and U-turn at a new crossover west of the I-35 frontage road. See the attached map for a visual explanation.
During construction, the existing crossover at Berry Creek Drive will remain open to traffic, the release said. Once construction of the new turnarounds is complete, traffic will be shifted and the old crossover will be removed
The project is expected to be completed this summer.
