Mason Road Widening

Construction Timing:

Spring 2017 through Fall 2017

Traffic Impacts:

Update: September 20, 2017

The final stages of work along the newly-widened Mason Road are underway. Weather permitting, during the week of September 25, access to Mason Road will be restored for local residential traffic only, west of Oakbrook Lane. Through traffic should continue to use the posted detour. During this time, work crews will install pavement markings and adjust the traffic signal at Butler-Warren Road to accommodate the new pattern of traffic.

Access to Hampton Village Drive will also be restored.

Over the next six weeks, crews will continue work along Mason Road from Oakbrook Lane to Whispering Springs Drive.

Mason Road Widening Detour Map

Project Information:

Mason Road will be widened to three lanes from Whispering Springs Drive to Butler-Warren Road. New curb and gutter improvements will be made along the entire section, and a new sidewalk will be built on the north side of the road.

Project Benefits:

The construction of a third lane will allow for the addition of a center turn lane along this section of Mason Road. Center turn lanes help reduce conflict points for turning traffic and allow through traffic to move more smoothly. This widening work will improve safety and ease congestion. Curb and gutter improvements will not only add aesthetic value, but will also allow for rainwater to drain more effectively from the roadway. The new sidewalk [or is it shared-use path?] will provide more safety for pedestrian travel through this area.
