Construction on Fletcher Trace street and curb improvements is expected to start within the next 25 days. The project is expected to take 120 days. Motorists and pedestrians are urged to be careful during this period and avoid using the street if possible.
Work will include repaving the street, replacement of deteriorated curb and gutter, and “traffic calming” measures to include medians in a few areas (to slow traffic) as well as several “speed humps”. Plans also include changes at several intersections to make the street narrower at intersections and slow traffic.
Bicycle lanes will also be included on each side of the street on most of Fletcher Trace. The bicycle lane will be on the inside of the parking lanes.
Residents who use Fletcher Trace on a regular basis are urged to use Davies Plantation/Highway 64 intersection instead of Fletcher Trace during construction.
