Intercity Highway Update
The city of Markland Woods, in conjunction with the unincorporated area of Millikan Mills, has completed the first western leg of the Golden Coast Expressway (Formally Business Spur A.) The expressway is configured in the express/collector system and currently has three exits in Markland Woods and two exits in Millikan Mills. The expressway will continue West into Millikan Mills and will continue East into Markland Port after a full interchange with the proposed Markland Valley Parkway.
The exits in order, from top to bottom are:
-Francis Street (Flyover Only)
-Stone Temple Avenue
Exits were built in a simple diamond style interchange to save on space on construction costs. Within the collector lanes, the on-ramp and off-ramp lanes have been joined to together as a 'third lane' to allow more space for merging in and out of traffic. The noise barriers that have been completed were built using resin core block in 'utilitarian beige.' Construction still continues along the open sections of the expressway with work being done to complete the grass centre median as well as other detailed work such as installation of lighting as well as landscaping.
