What is the status of the long awaited improvement to the Braddock Road - Danbury Forest - Wakefield Chapel Road improvement?
A study of the Braddock Road/Danbury Forest/Wakefield Chapel area was completed in 2011. That study identified several proposed alternatives for improvements to the intersections. Alternative A, which included improved signage and pavement markings, was completed in 2011. Alternative B would relocate the raised concrete median to improve the left turn lanes on westbound Braddock Road to southbound Danbury Forest, and on eastbound Braddock Road to northbound Wakefield Chapel. On July 10, 2012, the Board of Supervisors approved their Third Four-Year Transportation Program, which included funding for Alternative B, as a part of a 2014 Bond Referendum, which must be approved by voters before the project can proceed. Subsequently, FCDOT allocated advanced funds to begin preliminary design of the project, and survey is underway. The remainder of the alternatives at the Braddock/Danbury/Wakefield Chapel intersection remain unfunded, as are thousands of potential projects throughout the County. This Dialogue on Transportation Funding is a way to gain community participation in helping to decide which projects should be prioritized for funding so that they can proceed to implementation.
