West Side Travel Advisory for Thanksgiving and Beyond|
If your holiday travels and shopping adventures involve
Interstate 70 west, here’s a safety tip.
If you enter the highway via Wilson Road, don’t panic, you
have plenty of time to safely merge even if you find yourself on what you think
is the wrong side of the concrete barrier.
Check out these graphics and ‘dash camera’ video we captured
to show drivers.
In the last few weeks, we’ve noticed a lot of drivers
darting over several lanes the second they get onto Interstate 70.
You have time.
Here is video the project engineer captured using the dashboard camera.
He enters the interstate via Wilson Road.
Towards the end of the video, he ended up going to I-270,
but you can see even if you are not all the way over on in the left lanes, you
can safely get to I-70 west.
The graphic illustrations also help show you how to pick the
correct lane to merge safely.
