The proposed improvements will realign Burke Road, and raise the roadway to help improve safety and minimize roadway flooding. The project includes roadway reconstruction, new pedestrian and bicycle connections and replacing the existing drainage pipe to improve water flow below the road. The total project length is approximately 2,200 feet along Burke Road from Parakeet Drive to Peregrine Drive.
The $8.5 million budget for the project will come from the Six Year Transportation Project Priorities
