Updated Aug. 18

On Sept. 17, City Council awarded the construction contract to Fred Smith Company. There will be a pre-construction meeting later this fall. We will announce the date of the meeting in the coming weeks. During the meeting, we will give a presentation on what residents and commuters can expect during construction. City staff will be on hand after the presentation to answer any construction-related questions.

The Green Road Sidewalk Project and the New Hope Church Road Project have been combined for construction. The Green Road sidewalk Project completes gaps in the sidewalk along both sides of the road from New Hope Church Rd to Spring Forest Rd.

Summary

The improvements will include new pavement and restriping between Green Road and Ingram Drive and will widen the roadway from Ingram Drive to Deana Lane. The enhancements will include:

  • A three-lane, curb-and-gutter section;
  • Bike lanes;
  • Sidewalk on both sides of the street;
  • Landscaping and Street Trees;
  • Stormwater and erosion control; and,
  • Culvert replacement.
