Old SR 74 Widening, GlenEste-Withamsville Road to Schoolhouse Road + Access Improvements

Project Scope:

Approximately one mile of Old SR 74 will be widened from three to five lanes from west of Glen Este-Withamsville Road to Tealtown Road, and from two to three lanes between Tealtown Road and east of Schoolhouse Road. Improvements will include dual left turn lanes from westbound Old SR 74 to Glen Este-Withamsville Road.

Curb and gutter improvements along with upgraded stormwater infrastructure will be built within the project area.
In addition, access improvements will be made at Old SR 74, Tealtown Road and Paul Drive, including new traffic signals at key intersections throughout the corridor. A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Old SR 74 and Schoolhouse Road and the traffic signals at the intersections of Old SR 74 and Tealtown Road, as well as Old SR 74 and Glen Este-Withamsville Road will be upgraded to accommodate the additional lanes of traffic.

Start of Construction:

July 2019

Community Benefit:

The Old SR 74 Widening 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 north of SR 32, and along with the improvements being made on Clepper Lane, help alleviate significant traffic pressure along SR 32 by providing drivers with an alternate east-west travel route.

Estimated Completion Date:

Aug. 2021

A temporary road closure on Old SR 74 has been scheduled to support ongoing improvement work throughout the area.

Old SR 74 will be closed between Glen Este-Withamsville Road and English Creek Drive from Monday, Sept. 30, 2019, through Friday, Dec. 13, 2019. The intersection of Old SR 74 and Glen Este-Withamsville Road will remain open during the closure period and local access to the Glen Este Church of Christ will be maintained.

The closure will extend approximately 1,000 feet and is needed to install stormsewer and water infrastructure, build retaining walls and widen the roadway. A detour using Eastgate Boulevard, Eastgate North Drive and Glen Este-Withamsville Road will be put into place and marked with signage.

Utility relocation work has started and will continue through the end of the year. Temporary lane closures may take place as utility crews move in and out of the area.

Work to improve local connectivity and establish the connection between Paul Street and Old SR 74 also has begun. Our crews are working on Paul Drive, which will improve safety and residential access to Old SR 74.

Bridge widening is taking place on Old SR 74 west of GlenEste-Withamsville Road.
