Walker Road and Murray Boulevard Intersection

We will widen the Walker Road and Murray Boulevard intersection with dedicated turn la.

We will widen the Walker Road and Murray Boulevard intersection with dual left turn lanes and dedicated right turn lanes on all four sides of the intersection. 

We will also add a third southbound lane on Murray Boulevard from south of Butner Road through the Walker Road intersection. The additional lane will become a dedicated right turn lane at Bowerman Drive, south of the intersection. 

Other improvements include replacing two bridges over Cedar Mill Creek, adjacent to the intersection and replacing two culverts on Walker Road between Far Vista and Park Way.

This project ties into Walker Road Phase 2.

Construction start (expected): Summer 2023
Construction finish (expected): Summer 2025
