One of the most anticipated projects from the 2008 voter approved bond initiative is the Woods Chapel Road improvements. The original plan called for Woods Chapel Road to be improved in three phases. The current plan has consolidated all three phases into one and added an additional phase, from Briarwood/Castle Drives to Walnut Street, to be completed at a later date.
Consolidating the phases will lessen congestion and inconvenience for commuters and leverage
lower construction costs by bidding the project at one time. Construction phasing will permit Woods Chapel Road to remain open throughout the project.
Construction is in full swing and this project is scheduled to be completed in 2014. General Contractor Miles Excavating, Inc. has taken advantage of the dry weather and is ahead of schedule with the project.
At the January 22, 2013 City Council Meeting, a brief presentation was given on the status of the project. To see the presentation, click here
Please note that the speed limit along Woods Chapel Road has been reduced to 25 miles per hour and that fines will be doubled in the construction zone. We want to ensure that this project is safe for both motorists and workers.
