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.

Amount

$12,000,000

Spent/Committed

$1,498,299

Status

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.
