Included in this project will be a new roadway, street resurfacing, ​bridge, sidewalks and pedestrian lighthing from Rozzelles Ferry Road and the Yellowstone Drive intersection to the Yellowstone Drive and Coronet Way intersection. 

A water pipe rehabilitation project funded by Charlotte Water and the future Stewart Creek Greenway connects to both sides of the new roadway in order to allow pedestrians to cross the street and travel down Rozzelles Ferry Road.
