The Board of Supervisors adopted plans Tuesday for a traffic signal installation at the Borrego Salton Seaway/South Marina Drive in Salton City.
The Board will advertise for formal bids to be opened August 25.
The Department of Public Works will send notices inviting formal bids.
The cost is projected at $1,969,500 which includes striping installation on State Highway 86, extending the Highway 86 northbound left turn lane to Borrego Salton Seaway 180 feet to provide a total length of 790 feet, the southbound right turn lane will be extended 240 feet to make a total length of 860 feet.
Five foot shoulders will be added to the existing lanes to accommodate large truck turning movements.
The proposed improvements will help the traffic circulation issues associated with the Salton Seaway Arco station and for the existing need for traffic signal control at the intersection.
