Purpose & Need

The Glacier Highway corridor through Lemon Creek is heavily traveled by industrial and passenger vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists.  Bicycles and Pedestrians do not have adequate crossings or travel lanes. Vehicles have difficulty and delay with left turns onto Glacier Highway. The purpose of this project is to improve the flow of vehicular traffic through the project area, including transit, and to make the road more accessible to pedestrians, including those with disabilities.
