Target: Complete Weems Road and mixed-use trail project by 2024.
Current Performance: Completed September 2020
Weems Road contributes to traffic congestion at one of the community’s busiest intersections – Mahan Drive and Capital Circle NE. Our City’s roads and sidewalks provide means of access and are a vital component to every aspect of our daily lives. As such, the City has programs in place to address upgrades to existing streets to current Street Design Standards and/or provide sidewalks within the City limits. These programs were developed to enhance the City’s network of roads, bike lanes and sidewalks, and to upgrade roadways within the City limits as funding is available. These upgrades are aimed to support an efficient transit network with well-connected roads and sidewalks.
The Weems Road Pedestrian and Street Safety (PASS) project began in June 2019 and was completed in the Fall of 2020. This project reconstructed the roadway from the railroad to Mahan Drive, along with enhanced landscaping, a sidewalk on the west side of the roadway and a multi-use trail on the east side of the roadway. The multi-use trail now connects the existing Goose Pond Trail (that currently ends at Weems Road) to Mahan Drive, and all the way to Capital Circle Northeast, providing significant pedestrian mobility enhancements that were previously not available. The improvements realized from this project provide a significant enhancement to the City’s network of roads, bike lanes and sidewalks.
