Robert Road between State Route 69 and Tranquil Blvd. has been selected as a location for multimodal improvements. Construction, set to begin in Spring 2024, will take the roadway to a three-way configuration with two through lanes and a center, two-way left turn lane. The Town will resurface and restripe the roadway and add outside bike lanes. The project will enhance safety on the road, making it easier for homeowners and business users to turn. 

This project is also intended to direct through traffic to Glassford Hill Road, alleviating traffic on Robert except for those who live there or visit businesses in the area. A high visibility crosswalk with flashing beacons is planned at Robert and Nace, the entrance to Mountain Valley Park.

Once the reconfiguration of the roadway is complete, the Town will continue to analyze opportunities to enhance safety.
