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

Estimated Construction Cost:


$13,000,000

Project Status:

We are under construction!

Crews are currently working on Old SR 74 between GlenEste-Withamsville Road and Tealtown Road. One lane of travel remains open in each direction. Traffic is using the newly-paved lanes on the south side of the road, while work takes place on the north side of the road.

This phase of work is expected to be completed by the end of October and then crews will move over to Tealtown Road, where roadway widening, realignment, and signal installation will begin.

Next year, crews will move east on Old SR 74 and focus on improvements from Tealtown Road to just east of Schoolhouse Road.

All work expected to be completed by summer 2021.
