A new northbound right-turn lane enables vehicles to pull off the main highway as they access the cummunity of Orient. This is especially important when a train is on the rail line immediately adjacent to the highway. Vehicles waiting for the train to pass, including school busses, will no longer need to wait in the travel lane.
