Project Overview and Purpose

The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow, access, efficiency and increase mobility on this segment of I-440. The project section has four through lanes, while north and south of the segment there are six through lanes, which cause a “bottleneck” on both ends. The four through lanes in the project section regularly experience congestion and traffic volumes are forecasted to increase in the future. The roadway and interchanges in this section have substandard design elements such as poor sight lines, narrow shoulders and medians, and short acceleration/deceleration lanes. Pavement, structures, and interchanges along the project segment are in need of rehabilitation.
