CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A construction project along Corridor G in Charleston is expected to improve the traffic flow in the area near Oakwood Road.
The West Virginia Division of Highways is currently working on a project that will extend the turning lane by 1-thousand feet at the Oakwood Road intersection. The portion of the road was added by condensing the size of the median.
A spokesperson with the WVDOT tells WSAZ.com the agency believes the extended turning lane will not only help relieve traffic congestion in the area, but also make it a little safer for drivers.
The project will also include installing new traffic lights in the area. These lights won't change the traffic plan, but allow drivers to see them a little better.
This project will cost $295,000. It's expected to be completed by the end of this week.
