Expansion to 6 lanes will likely be project that is considered with a future bond initiative. It is not currently programmed with available bond money. As a general guideline, we begin considering expansion to 6 lanes when traffic volumes exceed 30,000 vehicles per day. The last count along Independence was done in October 2012. At that time the volumes were approximately 20,000 vehicles per day near SH 121 and approximately 15,000 vehicles per day at Eldorado. We continue to watch Independence closely given the rapid development activity in the area.
