Brief Description of Project:
We are currently in construction phase. This project includes a new four-lane bridge over the Barge Canal, approximately 525 feet in length; extension of the four lane Village Parkway from the present northerly terminus to the proposed bridge; and widening South River Road to three lanes north of the Barge Canal to the US50/Business 80 off-ramp. Additionally, the project will include turn lanes, median islands, bike lanes, traffic signals, curb, gutter, sidewalk, storm drainage, water main and landscaping. This project will also accommodate the installation of a future streetcar.
To improve traffic safety and to alleviate traffic congestion on Jefferson Boulevard.
