About The Project

This roadway project will widen 1.9 miles of Moccasin Wallow Road from U.S. 41 to west of I-75 from 2-lanes to 6-lanes (3 in each direction) when built to its final configuration. The interim phase of the project will widen the roadway from 2-lanes to 4-lanes (2 in each direction) separated by a 22-foot wide raised grass median. A 12-foot wide multi-use path will be constructed on the north side of Moccasin Wallow Road in addition to a 6-foot wide sidewalk on the south side and 7-foot wide bicycle lanes in each direction. Median openings will be provided to allow residential access and stormwater run-off will be collected and treated in linear ponds along the project roadway.
