Leesville Road Widening Project
- Street Improvement Project
- Street and Sidewalk Design Construction (Lead)
- Devere Construction (Contractor)
Road Closure Announcement:
The Renfield Drive entrance from Leesville Drive will be closed to traffic on June 22, 2015 and is scheduled to reopen on July 20, 2015.
The project requires that Leesville Road be lowered at this location in order to correct the poor sight distance of the exiting roadway.
The temporary asphalt path at the main entrance of Renfield drive that leads to the school will continue to be in use during this construction.
Please be cautious to observe speeds within the work zone and be aware of periodic traffic shifts as the project progresses.
Construction is anticipated to be complete in late fall 2015.
The project will widen Leesville Road to a multi-lane roadway with:
- A raised median
- Bike lanes
- Sidewalks along both sides of the roadway from I-540 to New Leesville Road
- Improvements to intersections along the corridor
- Leesville Road Widening Project Area
- Grading near I-540
- Temporary Sidewalk and Pavement Widening along Harrington Pointe Subdivision

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 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.
