West 2nd/Cherry Heights Traffic Control Work To Start

Construction of improved traffic controls at the intersection of West Second and Cherry Heights in The Dalles will begin on Tuesday, and is expected to be completed by mid-July.  The new traffic controls will eliminate the left-turn and straight-through movements from Cherry Heights Road and the AutoZone parking lot onto West Second Street.  Raised concrete medians and islands within the roadways will direct traffic safely and with less delay.  Similar traffic controls are in place near Fred Meyer on both West Sixth Street and on Cherry Heights Road.  The project will also provide for construction of pedestrian crossings and driver warning systems at the intersection.  The City expects this project to reduce delays and improve safety, even though it also may result in more out-of-direction travel for some drivers.  Project information will be posted at thedalles.org/transportation.
