Lake Boone Trail Safety Improvements

Improving mobility and connectivity for pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic

The Lake Boone Trail Safety Improvement Project is a Complete Streets project. The project limits are from the I-440 ramps to Ridge Road.

The project includes:

  • A road diet;
  • Repaving;
  • Traffic signal modifications; and,
  • Bicycle/pedestrian improvements.

Lake Boone Trail is currently a four-lane undivided street. The project will reduce travel lanes along the roadway to two lanes between the I-440 ramps and Ridge Road. We will install a left turn lane, and bicycle lanes along the street. The project also proposes at least one pedestrian refuge island to improve connectivity to transit and the House Creek Greenway Trail.
