The only closed road that remains from this project is at Big Springs Road from Bridgeway Drive to the new extension. This section requires a bridge replacement scheduled to be completed by spring of 2021.
City engineers are pleased with the finished product. “Without the burden of traffic during construction, the new road construction has a great finish quality,” said Brian Boone, Director of Engineering and Public Works. “Greenway-style sidewalks connect a two-mile pedestrian and bike-friendly loop that families have been enjoying over the last several days. This was a much-needed route and we are excited to have this project open to traffic.”
The new stretch of Robert C. Jackson has a 40 mile per hour speed limit.
