  • Add dual left-turn lanes for westbound traffic
  • Replace existing traffic signals with new poles on raised islands
  • Add pedestrian crossings on all four corners
  • Install new street lights to improve visiability
  • Realign the Isabelle Road and 109th Street intersection to improve sight distance for both southbound and westbound traffic
  • Construct new wetlands northeast of the intersection to mitigate project impacts and improve habitat
  • View preliminary design exhibits
