9. Project description: The intent of the project is to maximize mobility and access to existing and future land uses along the corridor, address system preservation and maintenance needs, provide for alternative transportation modes and improve system performance, efficiency, and safety. The primary users will be motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Motorists will benefit from the increased capacity and safety of the widened roadway which includes additional through lanes and turn lanes. Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists will all benefit from the addition of streetlighting throughout the entire corridor. Bicyclists will be able to utilize the on-street buffered bike lanes to negotiate the entire corridor and intersections. Pedestrians will be able to utilize the upgraded sidewalks and trail connections to negotiate the entire corridor and intersections.
10. Scope: The project includes widening Antioch Road from a two-lane thoroughfare to a four-lane divided thoroughfare throughout the 1.5 mile corridor. The project will expand the single lane roundabouts at 175th and 179th to multi-lane roundabouts and streetlights will be added throughout the corridor. The existing bridge over Coffee Creek will be widened to accommodate the additional traffic lanes as well as provide for bicycle and pedestrian facilities across the bridges. The existing sidewalks and trails along the roadway are anticipated to be reconstructed and upgraded to include connections to other pedestrian facilities along the corridor. The project will continue to provide multimodal systems to accommodate automobiles, transit, public safety vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles in order to maximize mobility throughout the corridor. The project will expand walkability and safety for pedestrians by maintaining and upgrading ADA compliant sidewalks and crosswalks. The project will improve bicycle access and safety with the addition of on-street buffered bike lanes in each direction. The addition of streetlighting throughout the corridor will provide safer accommodations for all modes of transportation. The expanded roundabouts will continue to provide for safe pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular movements while adding capacity.
11. Project schedule: Construction is anticipated to occur between 2040-2045.
