Improvements Coming to Ridge Pike – Jug Handle To Be Removed had a story today on Montgomery County approving an additional phase of improvements to the section of Ridge Pike between the movie theater and Chemical Road. From the story:

Montgomery County’s massive Ridge Pike improvement project got even larger Thursday as the commissioners approved an additional phase to redesign the portion from Regal Plaza to Chemical Road.

This is the half-mile stretch of Ridge Pike that crosses the Blue Route. Replacing that bridge, and improving the on- and off-ramps, will be a key part of the plan.

Engineers will also get rid of the jughandle, which makes drivers who want to turn left on Alan Wood Road have to turn right and loop around.
