Motorists traveling through the Tri-Intersection area can expect delays and increased travel time as traffic continues to be restricted to one lane in each direction.

Drivers are requested to stop behind the painted stop lines and the “Stop Here on Red” signs at the intersection.  These lines and signs have been placed so that trucks and buses have enough room to make the turn at the intersection.
