Thompson Road realignment project begins

Neighbors in the Arbor Creek subdivision began receiving notices that surveying would begin in anticipation of this project. They were told that construction would begin summer 2021 and finish summer 2022. The project is in the early design phase.

When the Arbor Creek subdivision was built, Kenny Terrace was constructed to be the ultimate location for Thompson. When THPRD acquired the old Lehman farm property for an eventual park, originally we were told that THPRD would have to pay for the road realignment. Eventually the county accepted the responsibility and this project was put into the MSTIP budget.

The existing Thompson Road has two sharp curves. Increased traffic volumes during peak hours create long backups from traffic waiting to turn left. Bike and pedestrian facilities are needed.

The existing Kenny Terrace is three lanes, with bike lanes and sidewalks.

Thompson Road will be connected to Kenny Terrace west of Saltzman Road and north of Hartford Lane to create a new traffic alignment that avoids two sharp curves. The new Thompson Road alignment will be three lanes (one travel lane in each direction and a center turn lane) with bike lanes and sidewalks. Improved storm drainage and street lighting will be installed.

Updates will be available on the LUT site here. We were told that a presentation on the project will be given at the January 12 CPO 7 meeting, and CPO 1 members may attend. We’ll share info closer to the date.

This approximately $6 million project is funded through the MSTIP Bonding Cost-sharing Program.
