Mitchell Mill Road Widening Project
- Road Widening Project
- Street and Sidewalk Design Construction (Lead)
- Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. (Design Consultant)
Right of way and Easement acquisition is underway along Mitchell Mill Road, between Louisburg Road and Forestville Road.
Owners along the frontage of this section of Mitchell Mill Road should anticipate survey staking to assist owners and real estate staff in identifying the impact to properties along the corridor.
City Real Estate staff will contact owners to set up meetings, as necessary, to assist in explaining the right of way and easement needs on each property.
Your patience is greatly appreciated as we work through the land acquisition phase, which must be completed prior to advertising the project for construction. Advertisement to contractors is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2015 with construction beginning in the Winter 2016 and the project completed in Summer 2017.
The project will widen Mitchell Mill Road between Louisburg Road and Forestville Road.
Street Improvements will include:
- Four-lane median-divided road
- Curb and gutters
- Bike lanes
- Streetlights on both sides
- Turn-lane improvements
- 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
- New water main installation to connect existing sections currently installed along the corridor
