UPDATE: Construction on the Bull Headley sidewalk connecting Chadwick Way to the Boat Landing is complete!

Recent Events

The Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency (Blueprint) has begun several preliminary roadwork activities along the Bannerman Road corridor to include:

        1. 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.

About the Project

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.

Project Location Map

The Bannerman Road corridor is approximately 4.2 miles long. The project area has been delineated as follows, including currently approved improvements:

  • Project 1 (Segments 2 & 3): Preservation Road to Quail Common Drive (Widen to four-lanes with multimodal and stormwater improvements.)
  • Project 2 (Segment 1): North Meridian Road to Preservation Road (Construct a median and turn lanes to support two-lane roadway with multimodal and stormwater improvements.)
  • Project 3: Orchard Pond Greenway (Construct a 1.5-mile multimodal trail along the south side of Orchard Pond Parkway from the existing trailhead to Meridian Road and Bannerman Road)
  • Project 4: Bull Headley Sidewalk (Construct a sidewalk along the west side of Bull Headley Road from Chadwick Way to the Lake Iamonia Boat Ramp)
  • Project 5: Tekesta Sidewalk (Construct a sidewalk along the west side of Tekesta Drive from Bridge Water Trail to Deer Lake. Includes an on-street parking area adjacent to Tekesta Park.
  • Meridian Greenway Feasibility Analysis: (Analysis of alternatives for a multimodal trail along Meridian Road from Forest Meadows and Lake Overstreet to Orchard Pond Parkway and Bannerman Road)
