Grant Road Improvement Project

Phase 3 & 4: Sparkman/Swan


The final design plans for Phases 3 and 4 extend from Sparkman to Swan Road, with temporary transition that will extend to Edith Boulevard. Similar to other phases of this project, the design will include additional travel lanes, new and wider sidewalks, more signalized crosswalks, improved bicycle lanes. Enhanced landscaping will improve both the pedestrian and bicyclist use and the appearance of Grant Road.  A median and managed access to businesses will improve safety, and will provide a safer and easier way to get to and from residences and businesses in congested areas. Additionally, indirect left turns will be constructed at Alvernon.
