Auxiliary Lanes - Tomorrow's Solution
This diagram shows the existing auxiliary lane on outbound US 290 between Mangum and W. 34th Street. The lane begins at the outbound entrance ramp from Mangum and extends to the W. 34th Street exit. Auxiliary lanes eliminate the immediate merge conditions often found at entrance ramps, provide traffic with ample time and space in which to enter or exit the mainlanes, and improve traffic flow and safety on both the mainlanes and frontage roads. As part of our program, auxiliary lanes will be constructed between all entrances and exits on US 290.
