SR28 Striping Work In Ephrata To Wrap Up Today

The state DOT wraps up striping work today on Basin Street in Ephrata.

Officials are reconfiguring a 1.5 mile section of the road to create a single lane of travel in each direction with a center two way left turn lane.

According to the DOT there have been more than 50 collisions in that area over the last five years with the majority being rear-end accidents occurring because of stopped traffic due to turns.
