The Columbia City Council conducted a public hearing concerning the Providence Road Improvement Project during the council meeting of June 3. After the public hearing council voted to direct staff to proceed with design work using option VIII-A with two council adopted amendments. The first amendment removed the improvements to Birch St. as shown on the plan. The second amendment allowed for unrestricted intersection access at Brandon Road and Bingham Road.
Under this option, street improvements would include installation of
traffic signals at the intersection of Burnam Road and Providence Road, and at
Turner Avenue and Providence Road, with lane additions on Providence Road. This
option also includes the removal of the existing traffic signal at Rollins Street and
Providence Road, construction of a southbound right turn lane on Providence Road
from Stadium Boulevard to Brandon Road, improvements to Birch Street, a sidewalk
along the south side of Burnam Road from Birch Street to Providence Road, the
conversion of the Bingham Road and Brandon Road intersections with Providence
Road to right-in/right-out, and the conversion of the Kentucky Boulevard intersection.
