This project includes minor realignment of the Shiloh and Steele intersection to create a standard tee intersection. The installation of a traffic signal is also proposed at this intersection. the project also includes the addition of a lane for the eastbound traffic on Shiloh that is turning right onto the Fulbright Expressway. A traffic signal is also proposed at this location.
Why is It Important?
Left turning traffic from shopping areas east of the intersection backs up while waiting for traffic from Gregg Avenue to clear. During peak times, this backup extends to Steele Blvd. and impacts the intersection of Steele and Shiloh.
What is the Current Status?
