One of two options for reconfiguring the intersection of Ligon Mill and Mitchell Mill roads with U.S. 401 involves building a bridge over 401 and a new spur road that connects to Ligon Mill. New ramps south of the bridge would carry traffic from eastbound Ligon Mill onto southbound U.S. 401 and from northbound 401 onto eastbound Mitchell Mill. All other turns would be made at the new spur road at a new traffic light north of the current intersection.
