 Project updates

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)

  • I​ntersection 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.


  • ​​​​To encourage walking and bicycling by connecting business/office land uses on the south side of West Mallard Creek Church Road with commercial land uses to the north

  • To increase vehicular and pedestrian/bicycle safety by making improvements at the intersections of David Taylor Drive and Claude Freeman Drive

Public meetings took place on the following dates to seek community input on the project:

  • April 20, 2017 at Resource 2 (afternoon) and Alexander Village Clubhouse (evening)

  • April 12, 2016 stakeholder meeting with University Research Partners

  • March 29, 2016 at StoneBridge Church, 3700 Prosperity Church Road
