Bethany Boulevard—four, not five or three

On February 22, the Washington County Board of Commissioners (BCC) voted 3-2 to accept a four-lane, $9.3 million design for Bethany Boulevard between Highway 26 and West Union. The design will incorporate several left-turn lanes, so it's really more of a hybrid four/five lane road.

That price tag doesn't include right-of-way acquisition to purchase land from adjacent homeowners to accommodate the wider roadway, which may run as high as $5 million additional. Residents in the adjacent neighborhoods are now awaiting the final design to see how much land the county will need to acquire.

The county is also working with ODOT on a future project to widen the US 26 overpass.
