COLUMBIA — Beginning Jan. 7, the Missouri Department of Transportation will install flexible-delineator posts to block left turns at Bourn Avenue and Broadway.
The department will block difficult left turns to and from Broadway and Bourn Avenue at the request of the city, according to a news release.
The posts will also make the easternmost driveway of the Crossroads Shopping Center, across from Bourn Avenue, right turn only.
The traffic change was initially part of an upcoming series of improvements to Stadium Boulevard but was moved forward as a safety measure, Department of Transportation engineer, Mike Schupp, said in the release.
The posts will eventually be replaced with a permanent median during the improvements to Stadium Boulevard, which will begin in spring 2013 and run through 2014, the release said.
