Branch Hill-Guinea Pike Widening

Project Scope:

The Branch Hill-Guinea Pike widening project added a center turn lane and paved shoulders on Branch Hill-Guinea Pike, as well as a sidewalk along the east side of the road from Bridle Path Lane to Jer-Les Drive. Drainage improvements also were made. In addition to the roadway work, improvements were made at the intersection of Branch Hill-Guinea Pike and Cook Road/Weber Road, which included upgraded traffic signals and designated turn lanes.

Construction Timing:


2018-2019

Community Benefit:

The Branch Hill-Guinea widening project was completed in partnership with Miami Township and Milford Schools to improve access to Boyd E. Smith Elementary School and support safer travel along Branch Hill-Guinea Pike. A center turn lane supports smoother travel and helps reduce potential accidents by separating turning traffic from through traffic. The addition of a new sidewalk provides safer pedestrian access in the area, and drainage improvements enhance stormwater management along the road and in the surrounding subdivisions.

Construction Cost:


$2,500,000
