Improvements will be provided along the south side of West Mallard Creek Church Road, from Mallard Creek Road to roughly 600 feet east of Claude Freeman Drive. The project proposes the following:
Approximately 3/4 mile of 12-foot shared-use path
A typical 8-foot planting strip (where possible)
Intersection improvements at David Taylor Drive
Intersection improvements at Claude Freeman Drive
Several CATS bus waiting pads
Due to the short length of the sidewalk network gap and its proximity to a large employment center (University Research Park) and nearby retail and commercial land uses, this project is a high-priority request along a thoroughfare. High-priority projects along thoroughfares connect multiple land uses, provide access to businesses and transit, extend the pedestrian network, and often show evidence of existing pedestrian demand.
