Sugar Creek Road Widening

Sugar Creek Road
This project will widen Sugar Creek Road.

What's happened? City staff is working with Parsons Brinckerhoff consultants to plan the improvements for Sugar Creek Road. They are also working on a planning study for this project. The planning and design phase will continue through 2008.

What's next?  The City Council-approved FY2009-2013 Capital Investment Plan includes Sugar Creek as an "unfunded project request." We will update this web page when funding becomes available. (last update: September 2008)

A Future Transportation Bond Project

The key element of this project will be to look at options for traffic going to and through Derita and accessing land uses associated with the rapid transit facility. The results of this planning study will impact what can and should be done to Sugar Creek Road from Graham Street to Lynn Lee Circle.

There is currently no funding for the real estate or construction phases of this project. The City anticipates funding to be included in a future Transportation Bond.

Objectives: 

  • Reduce traffic congestion
  • Improve safety
  • Provide pedestrian and bicycle amenities
  • Meet future traffic demands
  • Minimize impacts to community

The Engineering & Property Management (E&PM) project team will manage the Sugar Creek Road Widening Project through the stages listed below. Specific work is conducted during each stage with an emphasis on public involvement during the planning and design phases. Click here to learn how City projects are selected, designed and built.
 
Planning & Design Phase (January 2002 - Early 2003) 
City staff is working with Parsons Brinckerhoff to plan the improvements to Sugar Creek Road. The plans will be based on safety, cost, benefits, traffic analysis and a public involvement process. This public involvement process allows citizens and nearby businesses to provide input at public meetings.  The first public meeting was held on May 1,2003 in conjunction with the Nevin Road Extension project.
