C-470 and Ken Caryl Intersection Improvements

About the Project:

Intersection improvement work is expected to begin at the intersection of C-470 and Ken Caryl Avenue on Monday, March 21. Work on this project includes:

  • Removal and replacement of the traffic signals along both directions and both sides of Ken Caryl Avenue at C-470.
  • Improving the ramps from both eastbound and westbound C-470 onto Ken Caryl Avenue (Exit 10) by adding left turn capacity for motorists who are exiting C-470 and turning left onto Ken Caryl Avenue. This will help prevent left-turn traffic from backing up at these exits.
  • Widening the right turn lanes from Ken Caryl Avenue onto both directions of C-470.
  • Minor sidewalk improvements near the intersection.

Jalisco International Inc. has been selected for this project, with work expected to be completed September 2022. Work will generally take place Monday through Friday, 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the intersection, with construction crews utilizing single lane closures and shoulder closures along both directions of Ken Caryl Avenue. Flagging operations will be in place when erecting steel and to ensure pedestrian safety during the course of construction.
