Boyers Mill Road

Project Overview

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.

For the current approved Capital Improvement Program, please visit the resource on Historical Budget Publications.

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 multiple pull-off areas to aid in speed enforcement has also been proposed.

Current Status    

“North Section” Boyers Mill Road from its intersection with Gas House Pike to the northern limit of the Boyers Mill Road Bridge is currently in construction. 

Weekly Update: 

The contractor is currently working on Stage 1 and has been working on some Stage 5 work as well (addition of paved shoulders at the northern end of the job). The contractor is continuing to work on utility re-locations and storm drain installation. Work continues on installing the temporary road along Eaglehead Drive.  The contractor continues to prepare for the switch to Stage 2. Water line adjustments are complete.
