The study area begins at Gristmill Drive on the west and extends to McConville Road on the east. The figure below provides an illustration of the study area, as well as the intersections this study will examine. The study area includes the following seven (7) signalized intersections and two (2) unsignalized intersections:
1. Gistmill Drive (signalized)
2. Mill Race Road (signalized)
3. Millside Drive (unsignalized)
4. Old Graves Mill Road (signalized)
5. Creekside Drive (signalized)
6. US501 eastbound interchange ramps (signalized)
7. US501 westbound interchange ramps (signalized)
8. McConville Road (unsignalized)
The study will also consider the intersection on Old Graves Mill Road just south of Graves Mill Road since this intersection is heavily affected by Graves Mill Road.
Also, the intersection of Graves Mill Road at Forest Road already has a planned project to add another turn lane from Graves Mill Road onto Forest Road. Therefore, while this intersection is shown on the graphic, we are not anticipating making any further recommendations to that intersection.
The study will begin fall 2017 and is expected to end April 2018. The following schedule outlines the general schedule for this project. Any changes to this time frame will be reflected here.
o Examine corridor safety and crash history (fall of 2017)
o Examine existing and future traffic and multimodal conditions (fall of 2017)
o Hold first community meeting (open to the public) (December 2017)
o Develop draft recommendations for future improvements (Winter 2017/2018)
o Hold second community meeting (open to the public) (February 2018)
o Finalize recommendations for future improvements (March 2018)
o Provide guidance on funding and implementation (April 2018)
