The office of Commissioner James Noack is excited to announce that the Birnham Woods widening project was approved to go out to bid during the regular Commissioners Court session Tuesday.
“This is another critical mobility project that we are thrilled to get started with on the east side of Precinct 3,” said Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack.
The project boundaries are set on Birnham Woods Drive approximately 400 feet northwest of Waterbend Cove to approximately 500 feet short of Rayford Road.
The section of Birnham Woods Drive between Waterbend Cove and Trophy Ridge will be widened from an existing 2-lane asphalt road with roadside ditches to a 4-lane asphalt road with roadside ditches. The section from Trophy Ridge Drive to 500 feet short of Rayford Road will be widened from a 2-lane concrete, curb and gutter roadway to a 4-lane concrete, curb and gutter roadway.
The intersections of Birnham Woods Drive and Waterbend Cove and Lexington Boulevard will be expanded to five lanes on Birnham Woods Drive to allow for dedicated left-turn lanes onto the intersecting roads.
The project is expected to take roughly 14 months to complete.
It will be at least three weeks until the bids are awarded.
