This project will improve capacity, safety, drainage, and street aesthetics. Improvements include enhanced transit stops, additional curb and gutter, turn lanes, and sidewalks.
The total project budget is $5,605,259 and is funded by the following sources:
General Obligation bonds $5,000,000 Bond Premium $605,259 $5,605,259
The High Point Engineering Department completes the design. Overhead electric and private utility plans are under design. Once complete, right-of-way acquisition shall begin. Construction is scheduled for late FY 2023-24.
Washington Street Realignment
This project will improve the eroding slope threatening the road subgrade, shift the roadway, and stabilize the slope. The existing pedestrian bridges will also be evaluated.
The total project budget is $5,400,000 and is funded by the following sources:
General Obligation Bonds $5,000,000 Two-Thirds Bonds $ 400,000 $5,400,000
Construction plans at 85%. Consultant (STV Engineering) working on utility permits and encroachments, erosion control plans, and traffic control plans. A three-party agreement with NCRR and Norfolk Southern is still pending but should not delay construction. Right-of-way and easement acquisition in progress. Construction is expected in late FY 2023-24.
Triangle Lake Road
The Triangle Lake Road Improvements project focuses on an unimproved 1.2-mile segment of Triangle Lake Road. It is a two-lane, ribbon-paved roadway without turn lanes, curb and gutter, sidewalks, or other amenities. The shoulders are narrow and steep, and the road alignment presents vertical and horizontal challenges. The proposed configuration would include the construction of a curb and gutter to improve surface drainage, turn lanes where warranted, the sidewalk on both sides, bicycle lanes, and enhanced transit stops. Roundabouts will replace traditional intersections at Hickory Chapel Road and Baker Road, and utility improvements will upgrade aging water and sewer lines.
Preliminary design complete. Right-of-way, utilities, and roadway construction to follow, probably in FY 2024-25. Currently, Kimley Horn and Associates are working on the project's final design. The project is currently on schedule.
