We will be requesting approval from City Council to hold the public hearing for this project at the November 4, 2014 City Council meeting.

The project will widen Mitchell Mill Road between Louisburg Road and Forestville Road to a four-lane median-divided curb and gutter section with sidewalks, striped bike lanes and streetlights on both sides. Also included in this project are turn-lane improvements and culvert replacement at the intersection of Mitchell Mill Road and Forestville Road, a directional crossover at Neuse Crossing Drive and Longdale Drive, full access movements at Single Leaf Lane and Caliber Woods Drive and new water main installation to connect existing sections currently installed along the corridor.

Mitchell Mill Road is classified as a major thoroughfare in the City's 2030 comprehensive Plan. The existing roadway consists of primarily a two lane roadway with triple lefts at the Louisburg Road (US 401) intersection.
