Investing in our Neighborhoods
Contractor: Phend & Brown, Inc.
Start date: February 2018
Completion Date: November 2019
Investment: $12 million
Description: This project will involve the widening of Dupont Road from the existing 2-lane section to 4-lanes from a point approximately 600 feet east of Lima to a point approximately 400 feet east of Lone Eagle Way. It will also include a turn lane, where needed; a sidewalk on the north side and a multi-use path on the south side of Dupont Road between Lima Rd and Coldwater Rd.
In addition, a below-grade pedestrian/bicycle crossing will provide a safe connection for users on the Pufferbelly Trail. The Pufferbelly Trail already exists up to Dupont, on both sides of the road -- however, there is currently no safe crossing. The new under-road crossing will be near the Parkview YMCA and Salomon Farm Park.
