PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The design plans for the Washington Pike from I-640 to Murphy Road Project were previously completed up to the right-of way acquisition phase for the original proposed typical section.

In 2018, the project was put on hold because of funding constraints. In 2020, the project designer was asked to perform an analysis of the proposed project limits with a specific focus on traffic and pedestrian safety. Washington Pike, west of Mill Road is proposed as a three-lane facility with raised median. This section consists of one travel lane in each direction, a dual use left turn lane, with shared use paths and landscape buffers on both sides of the road. Washington Pike, between Mill Road and Murphy Road is proposed as a five-lane facility with raised median. This section consists of two travel lanes in each direction, a dual use left turn lane, with shared use paths and landscape buffers on both sides of the road.
