The intersection of County Road 26 (Lone Oak Road) and County Road 43 (Lexington Avenue) serves as a critical link for the local and regional transportation system, facilitating connections to I-35E, Highway 55 and Yankee Doodle Road. About 36,000 vehicles per day travel through the intersection. Lone Oak Road is a four-lane divided facility. Lexington Avenue transitions from 4-lane undivided north of Lone Oak Road to 4-lane divided south of the intersection.
Safety and operational needs exist at the current intersection. The reconstruction of the intersection will improve roadway geometry, safety, capacity and efficiency. Currently, turn lanes are mismatched and awkwardly aligned. This geometric flaw creates vehicle path conflicts that negatively affect the capacity and safety of the intersection. The project will widen Lexington Avenue to provide exclusive through lanes, dedicated dual left-turn lanes, and dedicated right turn lane.
