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. Details of Founders Marketplace access at Ridge Road and Highway 86 will be evaluated as the project design moves forward. Turn lane lengths and transitions will be balanced with traffic signal operations and available right-of-way. Full movement intersections for the Marketplace accesses would not be provided, but left turns in from Highway 86 and Ridge Road will be evaluated. Changes to these access points would likely be constructed along with Four Corners intersection improvements.

On the west side of Ridge Road, access to the Emmaus Anglican Church and parcels to the south is being considered. One option is to consolidate access and move the access point further to the south to create adequate spacing from the Four Corners intersection. The Town will be working with those property owners to develop the best solution.
