Purpose and Need
The purpose of the project is to improve operational efficiency and alleviate traffic congestion on Woodruff Road to improve mobility in the busy commercial area between I-385 and Roper Mountain Road/Verdae Boulevard.
Project Study AreaLarger View
The Woodruff Road corridor is a highly traveled corridor and currently experiences high levels of congestion during peak times. The most congested section is from Roper Mountain Road to I-85 where traffic volumes reach more than 40,000 vehicles per day during peak times. Peak travel times occur during the AM peak hour, lunchtime - midday peak hour, and PM peak hour. Due to the high level of commercial activity along the corridor, the midday peak is sometimes higher than the PM peak hour peak volume.
