Mitchell Mill Road Widening Project
- Road Widening Project
- Total Projected Cost - $9,427,000

Funding for Construction and Right-of-Way on this project was part of the City's Transportation Improvement Bond that passed last year. Funding will be authorized with the City's 2015 budget.
There was a great turnout at the May 20, 2014 public meeting and a lot of productive discussion items were brought up by the community. Staff is currently analyzing these items and plan to schedule another public meeting around August to provide proposed solutions to address these concerns.
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, new traffic signal at Single Leaf Lane and new water main installation to connect existing sections currently installed along the corridor.
