Roy Rogers Road will be widened, between Borchers Drive and Chicken Creek, to five lanes (two travel lanes in each direction and a center turn lane) with bike lanes and sidewalks.
All four design alternatives include bike lanes, sidewalks, street lighting and sound walls (where criteria is met).
View each of the four alternatives below and comment.
Alternative 1: Widen about the existing centerline
Widening equally along both sides of Roy Rogers Road would increase the width of the pavement section approximately 5-feet beyond the existing section on each side and fit primarily within the existing right-of-way. This option has the least impacts to adjacent parcels to achieve the section identified in the TSP.
Alternative 2: Shift alignment to east
Shift roadway alignment to the east to provide a roadway curve that meets the minimum roadway radius for the design speed of a County arterial roadway. This would require significant acquisition of right-of-way along the fronting properties currently developed as single family residential and would impact the backyards as well as dwellings on these parcels.
Alternative 3: Widen road to south/west
Widening to the west of the roadway only would result in an increase in width along the west side of the road of approximately 10-feet. This would require acquisition of right-of-way along the fronting property which is zoned AF-20. Additionally, widening to the west would require more extensive retaining walls and create a longer transition of the proposed improvements back to the existing roadway and bridge.
Alternative 4: Widen road to north/east
Widening to the east of the roadway only would result in an increase in width along the east side of the road of approximately 10-feet. This would require acquisition of right-of-way along the fronting properties currently developed as single family residential and would impact the backyards of each of these parcels.
