As the widening of Virginia Parkway nears completion, many residents are left asking whether construction on Eldorado Parkway is next.
Virginia between Ridge Road and US 75 sees between 25,000-27,000 vehicles per day, according to the city. In comparison, Eldorado from Custer Road to Hardin Boulevard, which is a four-lane road, sees between 17,000-28,000 vehicles per day.
As of now, there is no planned project to widen Eldorado. The city’s 2040 comprehensive plan designates Eldorado as a six-lane divided roadway to accommodate expected traffic growth. The widening of Eldorado could be added to the city’s five-year capital improvements program in the future.
