About the Project
Lakeside Drive is a two-lane road with average pavement width of 22 feet. The section within the project limits is approximately 1.2 miles and connects George Washington Memorial Highway (Route 17) to Dare Road. The average daily traffic for Lakeside Drive (Route 620) is nearly 13,000 vehicles per day, with a projected increase in average daily traffic to almost 16,000 vehicles by 2033. This proposed project is designed to improve traffic flow through the Lakeside Drive corridor by adding left and right turn lanes at intersections. Improvements also call for paved shoulder, curb and gutter and storm drains.
Construction began in July 2013.
Installation of storm drain, sewer and water lines is ongoing, which will be followed by grading and installation of concrete curb in preparation for pavement placement later in spring 2015. This work is occurring primarily between Yorkville Road and Old Lakeside Drive.
Crews may be working from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. each weekday and on weekends between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m., weather conditions permitting. Weekday and weekend traffic will be under flagger control.
Motorists are advised to use extreme caution when driving in the work zone, as the work will result in uneven surfaces. Access will be maintained for the side streets and entrances in this area; however, motorists should anticipate delays while the work is underway.
