The project is in the early design phase. The design consultant (RK&K) is completing surveys and collecting data along the corridor. A Preliminary Plan Public Meeting is tentatively planned for September.


The project will widen a segment of Poole Road from Maybrook Drive to Barwell Road to a four-lane median divided roadway with:

  • Curb and gutter;
  • Sidewalks on both sides of the roadway; and,
  • Bicycle lanes.
