Yes. The improvements will include a major upgrade to the intersection of U.S. 79 and Harrell Parkway – which will be a major entrance into the resort – as well as an upgraded railroad crossing further east on U.S. 79 that accesses a regional wastewater treatment plant. Improvements to the intersection of U.S. 79 and Joe DiMaggio Boulevard are also planned. There will also be a new public roadway connecting Kenney Fort Boulevard to U.S. 79.
Our long term Transportation Master Plan includes other additions and expansions to the transportation system in the area. Some of those projects may be built sooner than projected to improve regional traffic flows. Those projects will also provide much earlier opportunity for congestion relief to the community at large. Among the current design projects underway is Kenney Fort Boulevard at Forest Creek, which will extend all the way south to Gattis School Road and eventually to SH 45.
