Will access to nearby business and commercial properties south of 5th Street/Hwy 86 be maintained or improved?

On the east side of Ridge Road, the Founders Marketplace access will remain in the current location. The Founders Marketplace accesses at Ridge Road and Highway 86 were evaluated with the project design and it was determined that turn lane lengths and transitions would not allow for improved accesses due to traffic signal operations and available right-of-way, so the existing accesses will be maintained in their current state as right in/right out turning movements. 

On the west side of Ridge Road, the existing access to the Emmaus Anglican Church will be removed, and a new access constructed on Fifth Street across from Bader Court. The Town is working with the property owner to develop the best solution.
