STATE HIGHWAY 55 CORRIDOR STUDY

PURPOSE

The purpose of this project is to evaluate the corridor to see what upgrades and projects are needed to improve the highway corridor. Once completed this study will be used to plan projects for dealing with the transportation needs of the corridor.

VISIONS FOR SH-55

Ultimately this road would best as a divided roadway with either landscaped medians or concrete barrier restraints as necessary. The roadway design features should also include high speed left and right turn lanes at intersections to allow traffic to slow down without blocking the thru lanes. Since this roadway is not likely to be upgraded to freeway status a landscaped corridor would better suit this highway, with landscaping in key areas along the corridor.
