Ohio/King/State Street Road Improvements

Ohio and King Streets Vicinity map

Project Overview: ES-0071Preconstruction

The intersection of Ohio/King Streets and the SB I-5 off ramp has been listed as a High Accident Location since 1998. The King Street leg of the intersection is currently controlled only with a stop sign. Turning conflicts have led to the high number of accidents.

This project will eliminate left turns from King Street to the I-5 ramp and left turns from Ohio Street to King Street resolving the turning conflict problem. Adding a traffic signal at the Ohio/James Street intersection and adding a westbound right turn lane onto State Street from Ohio Street will improve traffic flow through the corridor. The Ohio/State Street intersection will also be reconfigured to improve eastbound left-turn movement and permit truck traffic to access I-5.Traffic Revisions
