Opal Interchange

Project Summary

This $12 million project replaced the at-grade left turn movements from Route 15/29 southbound onto Route 17 south with a grade-separated flyover interchange. The project improves safety and traffic flow at this high volume location. The former dual left turn lanes on Route 15/29 south often overflowed into the southbound travel lanes during periods of peak volume. The flyover allows traffic turning onto Route 17 south to exit Route 15/29 using a right exit ramp.
