A project will widen Rayford Road to four lanes between an area 40 feet east of Waterbend Cove and approximately 400 feet east of Birnham Woods Drive. It includes creating two new eastbound travel lanes from Waterbend to Rayford’s intersection with Birnham Woods and using the existing road for the westbound lanes. The project also includes constructing a traffic signal at the Rayford-Birnham Woods intersection and widening Birnham Woods by 600 feet north and south of Rayford. As of mid-January, most of the Rayford excavation was completed, and several pours on new lanes were completed. The project began in October and is expected to take about a year, officials said.
