The Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency (Blueprint) has begun several preliminary roadwork activities along the Bannerman Road corridor to include:
Soil Borings: This survey will determine the soil types at various points along Bannerman Road.
The sidewalk extension along Bull Headley Road was completed in November 2023. The sidewalk connects Chadwick Way to the Boat Landing on Lake Iamonia.
The Meridian Greenway Feasibility Study was completed in summer 2023.
As approved in 2014, the Northeast Connector Corridor: Bannerman Road project includes the widening of Bannerman Road from Thomasville Road to Tekesta Drive, as well as multimodal and stormwater improvements from Tekesta Drive to North Meridian Road. The Northeast Connector project also includes construction of three sidewalk projects in the neighborhood surrounding Bannerman Road, and expansion of the Greenways System by constructing the Meridian Road Trail from Bannerman Road south to Lake Overstreet.
Based on the results of a Traffic Feasibility Analysis, which examined future traffic capacity and supporting infrastructure needs along the Bannerman Road corridor, the project was expanded in September 2020. To mitigate future traffic congestion, improve safety, and increase multimodal accessibility, the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency Board of Directors approved widening Bannerman Road to four lanes from Thomasville Road to Preservation Road, and adding a median and turn lanes to the two-lane roadway from Preservation Road to Meridian Road.
The Bannerman Road corridor is approximately 4.2 miles long. The project area has been delineated as follows, including currently approved improvements:
