Overview of Sorghum Road

Description:

The project consists of channelizing the median at the intersection of SR 10 and Sorghum Mill Road to accommodate eastbound and westbound SR 10 left-turns. This improvement will accommodate westbound left-turns, the highest volume left-turn movement at the intersection, while separating left-turn movements at the intersection to reduce the potential for left-turn and angle accidents. Northbound left-turns will be diverted to the median opening to the east at Liberto Plaza where volumes are minimal and sight distance is adequate

Cost:

$400,000

Justification:

Identified under the Highway Safety Improvement Program as a safety priority.
