A project is proposed to construct improvements at the existing intersection of Johnny Mercer Boulevard at Walthour Road to improve the safety and efficiency of the intersection. A single lane roundabout was the recommended solution from an Intersection Control Evaluation (ICE) Study and was the preferred solution of the residents who attended or submitted comments for the Public Information Open House held in April, 2022.  Please see the attached exhibit of the proposed roundabout.

Construction plans are being developed to build a single lane roundabout that will accommodate truck traffic and provide accessibility for pedestrians and bicycles. Preliminary design is underway and expected to be complete by the end of 2023. Right of way acquisition, final design and permitting are scheduled for 2024. Construction is tenatively scheduled to begin in early 2025 and will take 12 to 18 months to complete.
