- Creating a separated two-way cycle track on eastbound Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard between Sutton Road and the Metro North Parking Lot entrance by restriping and installing flex posts or concrete barriers

Construction for the short-term improvements is expected to begin in fall 2022.
