A 2008 Transportation Bond Project
This project will make improvements to Back Creek Church Road from Rocky River Road to Scott Creek Road (the southern section of Back Creek Church Road). Improvements include: curb and gutter, planting strips, bicycle path, turning lanes and a multi-use path on one side and a sidewalk on the other side of the road. The project will also improve vehicular sight distance and provide landscaping and street lighting.
This plan was endorsed by the public as the better of two options presented March 22, 2012 to include a design alternative that best utilized the street improvements listed above. The second option considered, but rejected, was a 10’ wide multi-use path extending from Rocky River Road to University City Boulevard.
After this public meeting, the project team moved forward with the project design to include the southern section roadway improvements and to provide a 5’ wide sidewalk between Timber Ridge Road and Wake Robin Lane (the alignment of the 5’ sidewalk follows the previously proposed 10’ multi‐use path). Unfortunately, the sidewalk from Timber Ridge Road to Wake Robin Lane will not be built due to three factors: environmental restrictions at Back Creek, the location of overhead utility lines and the potential impact of the future Eastern Circumferential (EC) on Back Creek Church Road.
