SR 1 Northbound Auxiliary Lane, U.S. Route 40 to SR 273
The project proposes an auxiliary lane along northbound Route 1 so that the on-ramp at the U.S. Route 40 Interchange would be a continuous lane to the Route 273 interchange, where traffic can merge onto Route 1 northbound or depart onto Route 273.
This project addresses the current operational and safety issues in the northbound direction of SR 1 between the on-ramp at the US 40 interchange to the I-95 northbound flyover ramp. Currently, the on-ramp onto northbound SR 1 from US 40 is under-designed. Vehicles do not have the proper distance to accelerate and merge with through traffic on SR 1. This causes major delays in the AM peak on both SR 1 and US 40.
