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 Fall 2022 and start construction Winter 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 2023.
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.
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.
