There are three lanes on the north connector that are controlled by signals at the intersection at San Marco Avenue. These lanes serve the following traffic movements:

  • Westbound May Street traffic wishing to travel south on San Marco Avenue will use the inside (left) travel lane on the north connector and travel south (left) into the middle lane on San Marco Avenue.
  • Westbound May Street traffic wishing to access West San Carlos Avenue to travel to U.S. 1 will use the middle travel lane on the north connector, travel south (left) into the outside (right) lane on San Marco Avenue, and then travel west (right) on West San Carlos Avenue.
  • Westbound May Street traffic wishing to travel north on San Marco Avenue towards State Road 16 will continue to use the outside (right) lane on the north connector to travel north (right) onto northbound San Marco Avenue. This traffic movement must yield to northbound traffic traveling through the slip lane.

Expected to be completed in late summer 2019.
