Project limits​

North of Huron Parkway roundabout to south of the M-14 overpass.

Overview

The Nixon Road Corridor Study, completed in 2017, heard and documented corridor concerns throughout the study process, with key focal points being safety, non-motorized facilities, and user-delays. Three options were studied and analyzed. Only one option, the roundabout corridor, addresses all of these concerns. This option would add roundabouts at various locations in the corridor, while improving non-motorized facilities, safety, and operations.  ​

On May 15, 2017, the City Council directed staff to design the corridor improvements. In Fall 2017, Wade Trim was selected to perform the engineering design on the project.

Timeline

Project Design: On-going (tentative completion Summer 2019)

Construction: An anticipated construction date will be determined in the Fall of 2018 as part of the City's Capital Improvements Plan process.

Current activities you may see along the corridor

  • Marking and identifying utilities
  • Survey and topographic data collection
  • Tree location and identification
  • Soil boring investigations

All current activities are focused on data collection for consideration in the design process. Markings and staking do not represent removals or any other construction intent. ​
