The partial continuous flow intersection at Quincy Avenue and Gun Club Road is now complete. Motorists are reminded to utilize the new left turn lanes while traveling northbound and southbound on Gun Club Road to access Quincy Avenue. These new left turn lanes on Gun Club Road are located about a quarter of a mile before the intersection with Quincy Avenue. The new turn lanes crossover the oncoming lanes to alleviate traffic congestion at the intersection. Here is a reminder how to use the new crossover lanes when traveling north or south on Gun Club Road to access Quincy Avenue. Remember to stay left to turn left on Quincy Avenue.

This intersection experienced significant congestion during peak rush hour times. Long waits through multiple traffic signal cycles were a source of frustration. The County recognizes that working on traffic congestion is a top priority for citizens.
The new intersection is called a Partial Continuous Flow Intersection (PCFI) and is a modern and efficient approach to reducing delays and travel time.
The efficiency of a PCFI is developed by forcing the left turn lane movements to occur away from the intersection. With the left turn movements away from the intersection, a greater capacity exists for traffic going straight through the intersection on Gun Club Road. Additionally, the left turn movements on to Quincy Avenue occur simultaneously, increasing volume of vehicles through the intersection. As shown in the map, traffic is able to enter a left turn lane about a quarter mile away to continuously flow and bypass the intersection.
The E-470 ramps were relocated to help distribute traffic and ease congestion at the intersection.
The total project is estimated at $12,870,937 with contributions from the following.
