A Transportation Project
This major roadway transportation project will build a new bridge across I-85, extending from IKEA Boulevard to IBM Drive. This project will provide east-west connectivity between the University Research Park, Belgate/Ikea development and the CATS Blue Line Extension. It will also provide a secondary access road to James Martin Middle School. This project will construct a grade separation across I-85, but not an interchange.
- To create multi-modal travel choices and provide connectivity.
- To provide access to CATS future Blue Line Extension station at McCullough Drive
- To redistribute traffic away from City Boulevard and Harris Boulevard
