This project appears to reduce a lane of traffic in both direction, while adding an extra wide island barrier for turning traffic that used to use the chicken lane. In my 6 years in Leland I have seen plenty of accidents caused by those chicken lanes but I am not convinced that the new trafic pattern will reduce traffic congestion for the people who are trying to get onto 17-74/76. When DOT tackels the onramp-offramp issues, these new improvements won't be effective durring that contsruction either. There is a long way to go. I hope it works.
