Junction, Mineral Point roads intersection partially open
Construction will suspend through winter, resume in March
The Mineral Point and Junction road intersection is partially opened Monday with new traffic patterns that will last through winter while construction is suspended, officials said.
Southbound drivers on Junction Road will now go over Mineral Point Road on the newly constructed bridge, according to the release. Drivers southbound on Junction who want to access Mineral Point Road should use the right-hand lane and exit after going over Mineral Point Road.
Northbound Junction Road/Highway M drivers will use the same road and turning movements as before, officials said. East and westbound Mineral Point Road drivers will use the new exit to turn south on Junction Road/Highway M. All other east and westbound movements are the same.
Construction will be suspended for the winter and start back up in mid to late March, according to the release. The entire project is expected to be completed in August 2014.
