The Point Improvement Project
This proposed “Point” project will relieve congestion and increase safety along US 36 and SR 37 by increasing the number of vehicular lanes beneath the Norfolk Southern Railroad bridge. This will allow for two lanes of travel in each direction beneath the railroad. The widened bridge will eliminate the westbound merge on US 36 as vehicles approach the bridge. Eastbound traffic flow will benefit immediately from this improvement as dual through-lanes are established on both SR 37 and US 36 approaching the intersection adding significantly improved intersection capacity.
