​​​​Project limits

Geddes Road to US-23 . Earhart Road used to be two separate projects: Geddes Road to Greenhills Drive; and Greenhills Drive to US-23. These have been combined into a single project for that entire length of Earhart Road to be constructed in 2023.

Timeline of Earheart Road Project

  • Public Engagement: Fall 2022
  • Design: Fall 2022 - Winter 2023
  • Construction: Spring 2023 - Fall 2023 ​

The project is currently open for bidding, and we anticipate commencing construction in mid-July. The construction phase is expected to extend until early November.​

Why is this project being done?

The scope of this project is still under development. ​A main focus will be to improve poor pavement and upgrade parts of the​ stormwater system within the corridor. It will also provide the chance to address objectives in the city's Comprehensive Transportation Plan. There will be public input into this project. ​These things will guide the ​scope determination and move the project forward into design.​

Why is this project being done?

The Earhart Road Project will have many benefits to residents through enhancements to multiple transportation modes. Proposed updates include:

  • Repave the entire length of Earhart Road with in the City Limits.

  • Improve intersections with mini roundabouts to slow vehicles and efficiently move traffic in all directions.

  • Construct new sidewalks to get rid of several existing gaps.

  • Install bike lanes

  • Stormwater improvements.
