The Southbound I-605 Beverly project includes improvements to on/off ramps and is intended to improve operations of this interchange, enhancing regional traffic flow, improve travel time and public safety. The project includes a modified diamond configuration (includes southbound loop on-ramp), which will include a retaining wall adjacent to the western right of way line next to Union Pacific Rail Road (UPRR) and a privately-owned parcel. Other features include the removal of the southbound I-605 collector-distributor road from the mainline; the new ramps will instead merge/diverge directly from the mainline; a new intersection will be created on Beverly Boulevard at the southbound ramps providing access to all directions.
The project completed its design Summer of 2022 and currently processing the construction encroachment permit.
