Update Route 590/Winton Road Project, P.I.N. 4590.07
In February 2008 the Project Team met with the Town of Brighton Public
Safety Committee to discuss their concerns if the Diverging Diamond
(DDI) alternative were selected. The major concern was the capability
of the emergency response vehicles to traverse the interchange with the

The Project Team met with the staff from the Town of Brighton to
discuss the Senator Keating Boulevard connection to Winton Road and
other proposed development projects in the area.
The Project Team is arranging for the collection of traffic data on
I-590 to complete the analysis of the "weave" between Winton Road and
I-390. This data should be obtained within the next two weeks. Once
the analysis is complete, alternatives will be selected and the report
will be finalized and distributed for public review.
