A Pardon Our Dust presentation was shared virtually in July 2020 to share more information regarding what drivers can expect during the project.
A design public hearing was held in January 2018.
The primary purpose of this project was to alleviate congestion and provide for safer pedestrian and bike accommodations along Route 419 in front of Tanglewood Mall. The addition of a third lane along southbound Route 419 will help alleviate the heavy traffic congestion by extending this third lane until it ties to the Route 220 south exit ramp. Sidewalks and bike lanes were added along with appropriate crosswalks at the upgraded signals that will facilitate bike and pedestrian movement throughout this corridor. Transit improvements included combining the bus stops along southbound Route 419 into one major stop with a public bus shelter in front of the Copper Croft Apartments.
Project details included the following:
- Constructing a third lane along southbound Route 419/Electric Road between Ogden Road and the Route 220 Expressway on ramp
- Adding crosswalks with pedestrian signals at three signalized intersections: Ogden Road and Route 419, Elm View Road and Route 419 and South Peak Boulevard and Route 419
- Designated bike lanes on Route 419 in both directions
- Adding sidewalks along northbound Route 419 and along southbound between Ogden Road and the Wendy’s restaurant
- Combining the bus stops along southbound Route 419 into one major stop with a public bus shelter in front of the Copper Croft Apartments
- New pavement and road markings
- Retaining wall will be constructed in the vicinity of the Route 220 Expressway southbound exit ramp
This project will alleviate congestion and provide for safer pedestrian and bike accommodation along Route 419 in front of Tanglewood Mall. It will include the addition of a third lane along southbound Route 419, adding sidewalks and bike lanes as well as transit improvements.
