Hetzel St. is the entrance to Red Bank Plaza. The Eastern Corridor project will connect that plaza with Hetzel St. on the east side of Old Red Bank Road. This will enable Madisonville residents to access the businesses at the plaza from the residential streets near the corner of Roe and Erie.
Both alternatives connect Babson Place to the intersection to allow through-traffic to more easily reach westbound Madison.
Both alternatives involve Old Red Bank Road being used for through traffic.

Hetzel intersects Red Bank with a traffic light. Red Bank is 5 lanes and Hetzel is 3 lanes.
Alternative 2: Roundabout
A 2-lane level grade roundabout connects Hetzel (2 lanes) and Red Bank (4 lanes).
