Pierce County reconfigured the Lakebay intersection at Cornwall Road Southwest, Lorenz Road Southwest and Delano Road Southwest in late September to improve intersection operations.
About the change
Pierce County crews removed the gravel island and repaved the intersection with asphalt on Sept. 25. The county then restriped the intersection in a slightly-revised configuration.
An eastbound left-turn lane for traffic turning onto Lorenz Road Southwest from Cornwall Road Southwest was added. Please see the drawing above to see how the intersection was reconfigured.
The intersection now resembles a more traditional “T” intersection.
This reconfiguration is expected to enhance visibility for those turning at the intersection.
