Open House scheduled for Walker Road/Murray Boulevard intersection
For Immediate Release: Wednesday, May 04, 2016
The open house, sponsored by Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT), is a chance for the public to view the proposed preliminary designs, ask questions and provide comment. No formal presentation is planned.
The Walker/Murray preliminary design includes dual turn lanes and dedicated right-turn lanes at all four approaches. A third southbound lane is proposed for Murray Boulevard from South Butner Road through the Walker Road intersection. This additional lane will become a dedicated right-turn lane at Bowerman Drive.
Additional proposed improvements include replacing two bridges over Cedar Mill Creek adjacent to the intersection. One is on Murray Boulevard, south of Walker Road; the other is on Walker, east of Murray. Replacement of two culverts on Walker Road, between Far Vista and Park Way, is also proposed.
Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2018, with completion by fall 2019. Dates are subject to change.
Washington County is committed to planning, building and maintaining a great transportation system, ensuring the safety of all roadway users, and operating the County roadway system in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner.
