US-95: Lincoln Way and Walnut Ave in CDA

The highway will be expanded to include two lanes in each direction at the curve, and access to Lincoln Way and Walnut Avenue will be modified.

Changes are expected to make the intersection safer and easier to navigate, as the current layout of the intersection allows highway traffic to flow freely but subjects all other movements to a three-way stop condition. Due to high traffic volumes and the complicated layout, this intersection is a high risk for crashes and the location of many near misses. As part of the project, existing sidewalks to the east and south of the highway will be improved.

Intersection changes

Future movements allowed at the intersection include:

  • Drivers heading south on the highway will have an extra lane to travel through the intersection that transitions into a turn lane for a right onto the ramp to Northwest Boulevard.
  • Drivers heading north on the highway will have an extra lane to travel through the intersection with the option to use a turn lane to turn right onto Lincoln Way or continue onto Walnut Avenue.
  • Drivers heading west on Walnut Avenue may turn right to head north on the highway.
  • Drivers heading north on Lincoln Way can only head east on Walnut Avenue.

Northbound and southbound lanes on US-95 will be divided by a short curb.

Access to businesses

A center turn lane will be created for drivers heading north or south on US-95 to access Linden Avenue on either side of the highway. This center turn lane will also ease access to Walnut Avenue for drivers heading south on US-95 by allowing them to turn left onto Linden to then use Government Way to connect to Walnut Avenue. Although previous designs did not allow drivers heading north on US-95 to access Walnut Avenue, the final design will allow those drivers to make right turns onto the side street.
