This project is for safety improvements to the Cornelius Pass/Old Cornelius Pass, Cornelius Pass/Germantown and Old Cornelius Pass/Germantown roads intersections.
Cornelius Pass and Germantown roads are heavily traveled arterials north of U.S. 26 that meet at an unsignalized 'T' intersection. Traffic volumes, speed and challenging intersection geometry contribute to traffic crashes at this intersection.
Nearby Cornelius Pass/Old Cornelius Pass and Old Cornelius Pass/Germantown road intersections also present safety concerns.
A traffic study was completed to evaluate interim (immediate) safety improvements to the intersections.
The estimated $1.1 million project is funded through the Traffic Impact Fee (TIF) and Transportation Development Tax (TDT) for a traffic signal and interim safety improvements. A traffic circle and other large-scale improvements are beyond the scope of this project.
