Clepper Lane Extension

Project Scope:

Clepper Lane will be widened from three to five lanes between Gate Drive and just east of Glen Este-Withamsville Road. Improvements will include dual left turn lanes from eastbound Clepper Lane to Glen Este-Withamsville Road.

In addition, Clepper Lane will be extended one mile east and a new roadway will be built from the east end of the existing portion of Clepper Lane to Bach-Buxton Road.

Curb, gutter and new stormwater systems will be added within the project area.

A new traffic signal will be installed at the new intersection of Clepper Lane and Bach-Buxton Road and the traffic signals at the intersections of Clepper Lane and Gate Drive as well as Clepper Lane and Glen Este-Withamsville Road will be upgraded to accommodate the additional lanes of traffic.

Start of Construction:

July 2019

Community Benefit:

The Clepper Lane Extension project is part of the comprehensive program of projects to improve safety and connectivity along the SR 32 Corridor. Specifically, these improvements will provide better traffic flow south of SR 32 and provide additional travel options for traffic moving between Bach-Buxton Road and Glen Este-Withamsville Road.

Along with the improvements being made on Old SR 74, this project will help alleviate significant traffic pressure along SR 32 by providing drivers with an alternate east-west travel route.

Estimated Completion Date:

Aug. 2021

Project Status:

We are under construction!

Water line and stormsewer installation has been completed along existing Clepper Lane and in the commercial areas within the project area. The new alignment between Bach-Buxton Road and existing Clepper Lane has been constructed but is not yet open to traffic while additional infrastructure work is completed along the roadway.

Crews are currently working on GlenEste-Withamsville Road and on the western portion of Clepper Lane between Gate Drive and GlenEste-Withamsville Road, specifically roadway widening, constructing new sidewalks for improved pedestrian safety, completing curb and gutter improvements, and installing new traffic signals.

This is the final phase of work, which is expected to be completed by the end of this year, weather permitting.
