The purpose of this project is to improve traffic flow, relieve congestion, and improve pedestrian facilities on Mt. Cross Road.
Phase I design is to widen the existing 3-lane curb-and-gutter roadway section from Old Mount Cross Road to Parker Road to a 4-lane curb-and-gutter with raised median roadway section. A 10 feet variable width sidewalk will be provided on the south side extending from Lowes Drive to Dimon Drive. The length of this section is approximately 2,000 feet long. The roadway will be realigned to meet current geometric standards. The intersection of Parker Road and Dimon Drive will be realigned to improve safety
As funding becomes available, Phase II final design can begin. Phase II is to widen the existing two lane shoulder ditch roadway section from Parker Road to the West Corporate Limits to a 5-lane curb-and-gutter roadway section with a two-way left turn lane. The length of this section is approximately 3300' long.
