A section of Linton Rd. from Airline Dr. to Old Palmetto Rd. has been opened to traffic with the completion of a new bridge over Flat River and extension of the roadway to eliminate a hazardous curve at the bridge site.
Motorists driving Linton Rd. will also find another new wrinkle with the addition of a turn lane at the intersection of Airline Dr. Striping and signage at the intersection has been completed.
Drivers will now be able to utilize the new lane to turn either north onto Palmetto Dr., proceed straight onto West Linton or turn south on Airline Dr., providing drivers with two left-turn lanes.
Addition of the additional lane at the intersection is intended to help alleviate heavy traffic, especially during the morning rush hours.
