  • New parallel routes create more options for reaching shops and services on Route 29.
  • An overpass at Rio Rd. untangles traffic knots at one of the busiest intersections.
  • Lane improvements address the bottlenecks getting onto the 250 Bypass and near Forest Lakes neighborhood.
  • New bicycle and walking paths connect up to Hollymead Town Center.
  • State-of-the-art traffic light synchronization smooths traffic flow.
