Project Details

This project will help provide access to the new Clarke County high school.  Mosby Boulevard will be extended to intersect with Route 7 Business (Main Street) and Route 636 (Westwood Road). This project will also complete the connection from the end of extended Mosby Boulevard to Route 7 Business.

The road will have two lanes with shoulders and turn lanes into the school. A roundabout will be constructed at the intersection of extended Mosby Boulevard, Route 7 Business and Westwood Road. This location is approximately 60 feet east of the current intersection of Route 7 Business and Westwood Road.    

The roundabout will enhance traffic flow in and out of the school with fewer vehicles lining up to stop and proceed at the intersection. A shared use path will be built on Mosby Road and the roundabout and tie into the existing network of shared use paths for pedestrians and bikes.

The average daily traffic in 2009 for Mosby Boulevard was 1200 vehicles per day. In 2034, this figure is anticipated to be 1800 vehicles per day.

The total estimated cost for this project is $3.4 million with $625,658 for preliminary engineering, $511,883 for right of way activities, and $2.3 million for construction.

This project will provide a safe and highly efficient entrance to the new Clarke County high school.  Pedestrian and bicycle accommodations will be made through the shared use path, which will connect into the existing sidewalks along Mosby Boulevard.

Much of the construction is anticipated to take place during the spring and summer of 2012, while school is out of session and traffic impacts will be minimal. Lane closures will be required during construction. Traffic management will be set up for these lane closures.
