Seeking Citizen Input on Completed Conceptual Plans
Preliminary design for the Buckner Lane Widening Project continues to progress following the second public meeting held on July 9, 2020. The proposed widening is from Duplex Road north to Buckner Road. The City’s consultant, Kimley-Horn, as well as City officials have been working to complete preliminary design plans for the alignment and configuration of the widening project.The minimizing of impacts to property owners along the corridor remains a key design objective as design progresses.The conceptual plan will serve in part as the basis for preparing preliminary plans, right-of-way plans, and final construction plans for both the north and south segments.Key design features include:
- Two lanes in either direction along with center turn lanes and decelerations at various intersections along the corridor.
- Medians are proposed as a traffic calming measure and to manage turn movements as well as to improve aesthetics along the corridor.
- A sidewalk and multi-use trail are proposed on either side of the street along with corresponded pedestrian crossings at signaled intersections to enhance walkability and safe pedestrian travel along the corridor.
While the City is not able to facilitate a face-to-face public meeting due to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, the City is providing presentation materials that include design details and aerial plan imagery depicting the conceptual alignment of the widening project along the entire corridor from Duplex Road to Buckner Road for viewing by the public as well as the latest project schedule.
