To date, the Office of Transportation Engineering staff has negotiated and the Board of County Commissioners has approved several different tasks along Boyers Mill Road. Initially, the Boyers Mill Road and Bridge projects were a single Capital Improvement Project. However, the road and bridge projects were split into 2 separate Capital Improvement Projects in November 2010 due to the fact that the bridge project could move to construction quicker than the road improvement project.
Boyers Mill Road Reconstruction
The main focus of the Boyers Mill Road improvement project is improving the safety of the road corridor from its intersection with Gas House Pike to its intersection with Old National Pike. The upgrade is needed to meet the increasing traffic demands in the area. The roadway reconstruction project will include the addition of 2 foot or 5 foot (depending on location) paved shoulders for vehicle recovery, along with horizontal and vertical geometric improvements. Stormwater management improvements will also be made along the length of the corridor. A roundabout intersection will be included in the project where Eaglehead Drive intersects with Boyers Mill Road. The addition of 8 pull-off areas to aid in speed enforcement has also been proposed.
Current Status A contract was awarded to a consultant for the final design of the “North section” of Boyers Mill Road from its intersection with Gas House Pike to the northern limit of the Boyers Mill Road bridge project in April 2014. The consultant delivered the 60% design at the end of October 2014 and a Public meeting was held in November. The 90% design plan will be submitted by the design consultant by the end of April 2015. Property appraisals are anticipated to begin this spring. Affected property owners will be sent a letter once their property’s appraisal is complete to setup a meeting with the Land Acquisition Coordinator. Please be on the lookout for these letters this summer.
Negotiations for the “South section” (southern limit of the Boyers Mill Road bridge project to the intersection with Old National Pike) final design are still in progress.
The design consultant will have field personnel at the project site throughout the summer months completing field surveys and other investigations. Pavement and stormwater management borings were completed October 24, 2014. Please see the general survey notice below.
