Sugar Creek/Eastway Intersection & Sidewalk Project
Sugar Creek Rd/Eastway Drive Intersection/ Sidewalk Project
This project will increase pedestrian mobility by providing intersection modifications, improving the sidewalk network and increasing connectivity to neighborhoods, area schools, and businesses. The project is being accelerated so that construction will occur this summer when Garinger High school is not in session. When completed, the project will serve as a major detour to accommodate the Lynx Blue Line Extension project.

What's happened? This project is currently in the bid phase. Council awarded the construction contract to Carolina Cajun Concrete, Inc at its April 28 meeting.
 
What's next? The project anticipates construction to begin in June with a completion date of September 2014.
Landscaping to be completed during the City’s normal planting season between October 2014-April 2015.
