Current Activity

The City Council has approved the project with the changes noted during the March 27 Public Works Committee meeting. Right of way acquisition and final design of the project are underway.

Project is currently out for bid for construction services.


The proposed project would widen Leesville Road to a multi-lane roadway with a raised median, bike lanes and sidewalks along both sides of the roadway from I-540 to New Leesville Road. Additionally, improvements are proposed for intersections along the corridor.

Existing Leesville Road is generally a two-lane roadway with additional lanes at I-540 and intersections with Farless Road, Renfield Drive, and Crestmont Drive and New Leesville Boulevard and Hickory Grove Church Road. Development and the construction of two schools along the corridor has resulted in congested traffic at the intersection of Leesville Road and Farless Road and the intersection at New Leesville Road and Hickory Grove Church Road.
