Turn lanes repainted at 20th, Grand

Armando Lucero with the City of Artesia paints right-turn lanes this morning on east- and westbound Grand Avenue at its intersection with 20th Street.

Today’s restriping will clear up that confusion as well as improve traffic flow at the busy intersection.  Grace Miller – Daily Press
