    Wadsworth and Waterton Road Intersection Update


    On Saturday, February 11, crews will stripe and move barrier wall along Wadsworth Boulevard to accommodate a new traffic alignment. Crews will also move Waterton Road traffic onto the new alignment. The Waterton Road shift will move the intersection slightly to the north and changing traffic control to yield conditions.

    By combining both traffic switches on the same day, crews will be able to perform work over the weekend when traffic impacts are less. All work is weather-dependent and subject to change.

    The speed limit is 25 mph through the construction zone and is strictly enforced.

    For more information, please see the project website.
