As of 2 p.m. on Monday October 28, 2013, Northern Drive Phase 2 between Little Powder River Road and Highway 14-16 was officially opened for all traffic.
Final completion, including seeding, fencing completion, minor shoulder and ditch work, and striping is expected to be completed in the next few weeks. However, the final touches will have little travel impact on the newly opened Northern Drive.
The Public should be aware Northern Drive is a through road the entire length, and thus Little Powder River and Hannum Roads must stop at the intersection with Northern Drive.
The 5.2 mile, 4-lane Northern Drive arterial project commences at the intersection of Garner Lake Road and Warlow Drive, and ends at the intersection of Highway 14-16. Completion of Phase 2 caps off a 10+ year effort to plan, budget, design, secure right-of-way and construct the 4-lane belt loop road.
