Route 15 in the Township of Jefferson is a highly congested corridor that provides regional access to points north and south with heavy delays experienced by motorists in both the morning and evening peak hours. The goal of this project is to improve the safety and operation of the signalized intersection of Route 15 and Berkshire Valley Road (CR 699).
The project proposes the realignment and widening of Berkshire Valley Road to improve the geometry and to accommodate a five-lane section between Route 15 northbound and southbound. This new five-lane section will include a dual left turn lane from Berkshire Valley Road southbound to Route 15 southbound. Additional improvements include widening and extending the Route 15 northbound outside through lane, the construction of sidewalks in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the complete replacement of the traffic signals, along with upgrades to the existing stormwater conveyance system and guide rail.
