Bridge, intersection work continues along Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive project
Project Update: The Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive widening, intersection improvement and signalization project started at the end of October. D&W Contractors recently completed pavement work for the new lanes at the Rayford Road-Allegro Bend intersection and reopened it to traffic.
The contractor has been making progress on the bridge just east of Spring Trails Park Drive and has continued progress on the storm sewer work along Birnham Woods Drive.
In addition, D&W is working on completing all concrete pavement along Rayford Road.
Residents should expect traffic delays and adjustments at the Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive intersection when roadwork starts at that location in the coming weeks.
Scope of project: The project will widen Rayford Road to four lanes from approximately 40 feet east of Waterbend Cove to approximately 400 feet east of Birnham Woods Drive. A new concrete roadway will be constructed on the south side of the existing Rayford Road lanes to create the two new eastbound lanes. The existing road will be for the two westbound lanes along that stretch. Left-turn lanes also will be added for eastbound and westbound traffic at most of the intersections.
The construction includes an additional bridge for eastbound Rayford Road traffic just east of Spring Trails Park Drive.
The project also involves constructing a traffic signal at the Rayford Road-Birnham Woods intersection and widening Birnham Woods Drive to four lanes from approximately 600 feet north of Rayford Road to approximately 600 feet south of Rayford Road. All four Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive intersection approaches will have a dedicated left-turn lane.
Contract length: 360 calendar days
