Council approves alignment alternative for Kelly Lane at Weiss Lane
The City Council reviewed and approved a realignment of Kelly Lane at Weiss Lane, Hodde Lane and Cele Road. An alignment study was added to the Kelly Lane Phase 3 project in August 2019 to review current and future roadways in the area to determine if the intersection should be modified to align with Cele Road.
The project took into consideration growth, environmental and cultural resources, local area land uses, engineering design guidelines and the potential impact to proposed development in the area. Other factors included safety, driver expectancy, mobility, travel times, level of services, cost, access, and right-of-way.
The City Council approved City staff’s recommendation of the alternative pictured below which curves Kelly Lane northward to connect in a four-way intersection at Weiss Lane at Hodde Lane and could add approximately $2.5 million to the project.
Construction of this modified intersection will be included as part of the Kelly Lane Phase 3 project and the alignment will be previewed at a future open house for Kelly Lane Phase 2.
