This project will include roadway widening and operational improvements to intersections, drainage features, and pedestrian facilities along a 2.6-mile-long segment of Quacco Road beginning east of the existing Quacco Road bridge over I-95 and terminating at SR 25/US 17.  The roadway widening will consist of two 12-foot lanes with a 14-foot flush median along most of the corridor.  Four 12-foot lanes and an urban typical section will be used at the intersection along the SR 25/US 17 widening. Right-turn-lanes will also be added along the corridor to prevent queuing along Quacco Road.  Pedestrian facilities will be a large part of the improvements for this project. A 10-foot shared use path will be along the north side and a 5-foot sidewalk will be along the south side and will include bus terminals for the CAT bus route that currently services the area. Options being considered will improve and address the signalized intersection at SR 25/US 17. Chatham County held a public information open house for this project on June 13, 2017.  Additional details can be found on the attached advertisement.

The project was split into two phases for construction. Phase 1 will include the improvements at the intersection of Quacco Road and U.S. 17. Phase 1 construction should begin later this summer or early fall. Phase 2 will include the widening of Quacco Road between I-95 and the intersection with U.S. 17. Phase 2 is currently scheduled after Phase 1 is complete in mid 2020.
