Allegro Bend Blvd scheduled to be closed at Rayford Road. As part of the Rayford Road widening project from Waterbend Cove to Birnham Woods Drive, access to Allegro Bend Boulevard from Rayford Road will be closed starting Friday, April 16, as crews work on that intersection.
Through traffic along Rayford Road will remain open in both directions.
The intersection is scheduled to reopen by the end of April, weather permitting.
Contractor D&W will tie in the existing roads with the new eastbound lanes of Rayford Road at this intersection.
Residents who live off of Allegro Bend Boulevard can use Cochran Park Trail to access or exit Rayford Road.
During the intersection closure, a temporary three-way stop will be placed at Rayford Road and Cochran Park Trail.
The Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive road widening, intersection improvement and signalization project started in October 2020.
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.
Dedicated left-turn lanes along Rayford Road turning into communities also are included in the project.
There also will be an additional bridge constructed for eastbound Rayford Road traffic just east of Spring Trails Park Drive.
That bridge construction is underway.
The project 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.
It is a 360-calendar day contract to complete the project.
