Dillard Street Reconstruction

This project includes the reconstruction of South Dillard Street from Plant Street to Colonial Drive (SR 50). The purpose of the street reconstruction is to replace underground utilities, to create a more inviting streetscape that comfortably accommodates all modes of travel (walking, bicycling, motor vehicle), to better support the land uses on both sides of the street and nearby, to create a better gateway or arrival experience into the downtown district to enhance the overall image of the City, and to better connect the adjacent neighborhoods to each other as well as the downtown.

The conceptual project design includes roundabouts at Plant Street, Story Road, and Smith Street. The construction of the roundabouts will likely require the acquisition of additional right of way. The conceptual project design also includes lane removals (road diet), from a five-lane section to a three-lane section. The conceptual-level analysis has found these changes to be viable with an improved effect on traffic flow and roadway operations.

The project is anticipated to start December 2020.
