Bon Air Pedestrian Improvements, Phase 1

This information is for Phase 1 of the Bon Air Pedestrian Improvements. View Phase 2 at Bon Air Pedestrian/Bike Improvements, Phase II.

Project Description

Revenue sharing funds (50% state funds and 50% county funds) will be used to construct a concrete sidewalk along McRae Road from Forest Hill Avenue to Rockaway Road and an asphalt shared-use path along Rockaway Road from McRae Road to the Bon Air Community Association. The project also includes the construction of a mini-roundabout at the intersection of McRae Road and Rattlesnake Road. A design public hearing was held May 16, 2019.

Traffic Impacts

McRae Road will remain open to local traffic at all times.

Daytime lane closures to through traffic will be necessary during construction, including intermittent detours from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on portions of McRae Road.

School bus arrivals and departures will not be impacted by this detour.

Project Timeline

Construction is anticipated to proceed through December 2024.
