State planning improvements for troublesome Peru intersection

Posted by wlpo on August 31, 2015

Work begins Monday to make a dangerous intersection in Peru safer.

A new right-turn lane for southbound traffic crossing the Route 251 bridge will be built to hopefully make it easier for drivers to see oncoming cars when turning off of Ben Samek, or Slough Road. The intersection was the site of a bad crash with injuries last month and a fatal crash last September.

The work zone south of the bridge will have flaggers and lane closures. Advanced Asphalt out of Princeton is doing the job and should be done by mid-November.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
