Project description: An existing intersection at Victory Road and Forsythe Road, south of Cliff View Drive, had limited site distance and experienced periodic crashes. Recent development near the intersection created significant changes. The County and developer previously negotiated an agreement for the developer to dedicate funds and the necessary right of way to realign the road at the intersection and significantly improve the site distance. Nearly 1000 LF of new roadway alignment was constructed, including excavation, pavement, stormwater, guardrail and signing efforts. Additional scope was added to include improvements made along Forsythe Road, including additional embankment, a guardrail run with terminal end pieces, and improvements to the vertical curve in order to close the existing Victory Road's access to Forsythe Road and open a new access approximately 300 feet to the west.
Current activities: Construction has been completed with work having occurred, between September and October 2019.
Schedule: Construction began September 9, 2019 with all on-site work being completed October 18th. However, the new roadway alignment and connection to S. Forsythe Road remains closed while a utility line is being relocated. Current plans to complete the utility work appear to be occurring December 2019.
Project impact on traffic: S. Victory Road and its new connection to S. Forsythe Road has been completed, but remains closed with a detour remaining in place until further notice.
