The part of U.S. 35 near ABC Metals is included in the city’s plans to annex territories south of town. If and when the annexation becomes complete, Williams said the city could create a left turn lane onto Beckman Drive for trucks heading east on U.S. 35, allowing easier access to ABC Metals.
“If the annexation goes through, we could fix it within weeks,” Williams said.
Increasing signage in the area should help as well, Williams added, along with encouraging management at ABC Metals to remind drivers of the proper truck routes.
