This project will increase capacity along Rea Road by utilizing the right turn lane drops and median to develop an additional northbound and southbound through-lane along Rea Road between the ramps at I-485 and Williams Pond Lane. This project will also increase turn-lane capacity and improve the intersection at Piper Station Drive and Ballantyne Commons Parkway. Pedestrian safety and mobility will also be maintained by providing sidewalks on both sides of Rea Road. Other specific improvements include curb and gutter, accessible ramps and driveways.
