Phase 1 of Sprice/Pine St. Done
(Deming) – Phase One of the Spruce/Pine intersection realignment is completed.
Barricades were being lifted to allow traffic to flow normally through the newly realigned intersection, which eliminated the “Y” merge from Spruce onto Pine for vehicles travelling east on Spruce.
Jamie Jackson with Deming Excavating, the contractor for the project, said state officials will now conduct a 120-day traffic study to determine if a stoplight is needed at the intersection.
The study is scheduled to be completed November 21st.
Reportedly, the wiring infrastructure for a stoplight was included in phase one, but the addition of the light, which would control the traffic from Spruce as well as traffic on the road east of Wendy’s, was not part of the initial project.
Motorists are asked to pay close attention to the striping and turning parameters as they get used to the newly realigned intersection.
