Crash-plagued intersection on Hwy. V may get turn lanes PDF Print E-mail

Consultant’s proposal is a logical fix for crossing at Hwy. W, county official says

    Ozaukee County officials who are working quickly to redesign an accident-plagued intersection between Port Washington and Grafton were to get their first look Thursday at a proposed solution — turning lanes designed to bring order to the confusing and sometimes chaotic crossing at highways V and W.

    The preferred concept proposed by Gremmer & Associates, the Fond du Lac-based consulting engineering firm hired by the county to redesign the intersection, calls for slotted left-turn lanes on both the north and south-bound sides of Highway V to guide motorists turning onto W through the intersection.


    The term “slotted” refers to a design in which the turning lane is separated from traffic lanes by a wedge-shaped island.


    One of the problems with the current design is the wide, unmarked break in the median at the intersection. The design forces north and south-bound vehicles turning from V onto W to cross each other in the median break, which at times becomes further congested with Highway W vehicles going straight through the intersection.
