The document is a long-range plan for the city’s future roadway development, according to the meeting agenda. Also included in the plan is a pedestrian facilities plan, which offers long-term plans for sidewalks, shared-use paths and off-road trails.
The plan contains a map for potential future roadway development that includes the following.
- Flint Rock Road: widening to a four-lane, divided highway with a shared-use path
- Lohmans Spur: widening from Lohmans Crossing to Main Street to a four-lane, divided highway; inclusion of a shared-use path from Flintlock Trace to Lohmans Crossing to make a safer path for pedestrians and bicyclists
- Main Street: provide a new connection between RR 620 and Lohmans Crossing by aligning with the existing Glen Heather Drive on the east side of RR 620 and going on to Lohmans Crossing on to the west, where it will align with Wingreen Loop
- Birrell Street: extension until it intersects with Lohmans Spur
- Murfin Road: revision of current intersection with RR 620 to align with existing Bella Montagna Circle
In addition specific road suggestions, the thoroughfare plan recommends that parallel roads be built along RR 620 and State Hwy. 71 to improve safety and accessibility and to reduce traffic. In addition, the document encourages commercial property owners to connect with adjacent properties to enable traffic flow between the businesses.
City staff stressed that the plans only includes recommendations that are neither final nor funded.
