McKee/Providence Road

​McKee/Providence Road
The McKee Road/Providence Road Intersection Improvement Project will reduce congestion and better facilitate pedestrians crossing the intersection. 

What's happened? During the planning phase, the project team used the City’s Urban Street Design Guidelines (USDG), traffic analysis and citizen comments to determine the best solution for the McKee Road/Ballantyne Commons Parkway and Providence Road intersection. Three public meetings were held to discuss alternatives for improvements at the intersection.

What's next? Tree removal began in April with relocation of utilities to follow on the McKee Road/ Providence Road Intersection project. Utility relocation is necessary prior to constructing planned roadway improvements. Overhead utilities will be relocated on Ballantyne Commons Parkway at Providence Promenade Drive to McKee Road at Tilley Morris Road and Providence Road north and south of the intersection and will include setting new poles, installing new cable and fiber and removing old poles within the acquired right-of-way and easements. ​The relocation of overhead and underground utility lines can be lengthy, due to the complicated nature of the work, and must be completed by the utility companies ahead of street construction work.

A 2010 Transportation Bond Project

This project will provide bicycle and sidewalk connections and provide additional travel lanes to reduce delay and improve capacity for motorists. Design improvements at the intersection include an additional southbound left turn lane on Providence Road, addition of the eastbound turn lane on Ballantyne Commons Parkway and an eastbound through lane beginning on Ballantyne Commons Parkway ending at Tilley Morris Road.

  • Improve capacity and relieve congestion
