About the Project
The purpose of this project is to provide a functional and safer multi-modal corridor for vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians along the Blue Ridge Road corridor from Duraleigh Road to Crabtree Valley Avenue. We call this a Complete Street.
The project will widen a segment of Blue Ridge Road from Duraleigh Road to Crabtree Valley Avenue to three lanes with:
- Curb and gutter;
- Pedestrian culvert,
- Sidewalks; and,
- A multi-use path.
The City is receiving federal funding for a portion of this project.
What does that mean?
We are splitting the project into two sections for construction.
- Blue Ridge Road South is from Duraleigh Road to just east of Homewood Banks Drive and is scheduled to advertise for construction contracts Summer 2023 and start construction Fall 2023.
- Blue Ridge Road North is from just east of Homewood Banks Drive to Crabtree Valley Avenue and is tentatively scheduled to begin construction in mid 2024.
