Fifth Street is a major arterial connecting local and regional travel between the eastern portion of Town and Interstate 25. Roadway and pedestrian improvements for Fifth Street have been identified within the 2017 Transportation Master Plan. These improvements will maintain adequate capacity and ensure efficient road network connections for future development.
The Fifth Street widening project will complete all design elements for the transportation network from South Gilbert Street to Ridge Road. The improvements identified in the master plan are:
Implementation of on-street bike lane / shoulder from South Gilbert Street to Ridge Road
Addition of sidewalks from Rock Street to Ridge Road
Intersection improvements at Woodlands Boulevard and Valley Drive
In order to deliver the best value for funds spent on improvements, the design will consider different phases of delivery.
Phase: design (2022)
Phase: property acquisition (2022-2023)
Phase: sidewalk from Gilbert Street to Ridge Road (2023-2024)
Phase: roadway and intersection improvements (2023-2024)
