Work has started on the Route V / Polk Street realignment project. The project involves closing the Route V / Bridge Street bridge over the railroad tracks, and building a new bridge on Polk Street (north of the existing bridge) to better handle Route V traffic. In order to do so, the existing Polk Street would be extended on east to hook up with Route V (shown here, with the camera pointing west). Constructing a direct route eliminates issues involving sight limitations and sharp turns.
