Median
Two additional lanes were added to the roadway by decreasing the width of the center median.

This project widens 3.4 miles of existing State Route 242 from four to six lanes from I-680 to State Route 4. The improvements include widening the roadway by decreasing the median width to allow for one additional lane in each direction, constructing drainage improvements, building soundwalls and restriping.

 Right-of-way acquisition is not required, since all widening occurs within existing State right-of-way.
