STH 64/Pine Ridge Avenue Access Safety Study 2013

State Trunk Highway (STH) 64 (aka East Main Street) is one of the City of Merrill’s two principal arterials and is the major east-west corridor through the city. The other principal arterial is the north-south Center Avenue/County K (Bus. 51) corridor. The STH 64 / East Main Street and Pine Ridge Avenue intersection area is one of four major areas of employment in the city. Recent and proposed development on Pine Ridge Avenue have raised concerns about the effect of those changes on the operations and safety of STH 64 / E. Main Street and the interchange ramps from STH 64 to USH 51. The purpose of this study is to determine potential future mitigation measures and improvements on STH 64 as well as the local street network for safety and operations.
