Intersection improvement work is complete

The Shoreline Drive (County Road 15) and Shadywood Road (County Road 19) intersection improvement project has come to an end.

This spring, we began making improvements to the intersection with the goal to update the intersection to improve safety and meet today’s needs for travel in the area.

The intersection now offers:

  • Reconfigured travel lanes with dedicated left-turn lanes and upgraded traffic signals to provide a safer and more efficient travel through the intersection
  • Modified right-turn lane from eastbound Shoreline Drive to southbound Shadywood Road to improve safety when merging
  • New concrete bump-out on eastbound Shoreline Drive just east of Kelly Avenue to clearly separate the through lane from the right-turn lane
  • New pavement providing a smoother ride
  • Wider sidewalks, new curb ramps and accessible pedestrian signals that meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
