Work on two projects at Grogans Mill Road and Research Forest Drive is slated to wrap up in early 2024.

The overview

On the northern side of the intersection, acceleration and deceleration lanes are being extended in a project led by Montgomery County Precinct 2. Turn lane improvements in early 2023 previously extended the westbound acceleration lane from southbound Grogans Mill to westbound Research Forest.

Project engineer John Bleyl said in an email in December that Entergy utility pole relocation for the westbound deceleration lane at the intersection was completed, and work on the next phase would take about 60 days from its November start date. The $240,000 project is being managed by Montgomery County Precinct 2.

What else?

Meanwhile, Montgomery County Precinct 3 began a project in early November to extend the right-turn lane on eastbound Research Forest Drive turning onto southbound Grogans Mill Road as well as adding a merge lane after the turn, according to a news release from Precinct 3.

The purpose of the work is to alleviate congestion on eastbound Research Forest, according to a Precinct 3 news release.

The cost of the Precinct 3 portion of the road work was $365,613, according to county officials.
