Pleasant Avenue will be widened to accommodate a lengthened southbound left turn lane and a center turn late between John Gray Road and Augusta Boulevard. Work includes storm sewer improvements, utility adjustments, guardrail improvements, pavement overlay and new pavement markings. A recent safety study found a higher rate of southbound accidents and recommended the work included in this project. Average daily traffic is approximately 16,700 vehicles per day. Motorists can expect lane closures and some delay during construction. No road closures are anticipated. This project will be administered by ODOT and is funded 90% by an ODOT safety grant and 10% local funds.
