The Capitol Landing Road Corridor Improvements, between Merrimac Trail and Bypass Road, were originally envisioned in 2011 by the Northeast Triangle Focus Group and first appeared in the City’s Comprehensive Plan in 2013.
The Capitol Landing Road Corridor Improvements include:
Reducing travel lanes from four to two
Adding a separated bike lane
Widening sidewalks to 5 feet on the east side and 8 feet on the west side
Placing overhead wires underground
Expanding water service with a 12-inch water main
The improvements also reconfigure the intersection of Capitol Landing and Bypass roads, which includes:
Realigning Capitol Landing Road to create a T-intersection with Bypass Road
Installing a new traffic signal
Connecting bicycle and pedestrian paths from the intersection to the Capitol Landing Road Corridor
The current design is the result of public input collected in the spring of 2021. Due to COVID health and safety guidelines at the time, the City issued an online survey to businesses and residents near the corridor. Those results were presented to City Council in May 2021. Two public input sessions were held in October 2022.
