Five Mile Road Project Wrapping Up This Week

The Five Mile Road project from Austin to Lincoln roads is expected to be complete and reopen to traffic by this Friday, July 9.

Until then, Five Mile Rd. from Austin Rd. to Cochran St. remains closed with local access only. Work began in May 2009 to widen and rebuild the street to 44-ft. including curbs and a continuous sidewalk on the west side, a 5-ft. bike lane north and shared-use bike lane south on Five Mile Rd.

The $6.1 million project was funded by state and federal sources, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Stimulus, and Mitigation and Real Estate Excise Taxes.
