This project will widen Cumberland Boulevard between Akers Mill Road and Cumberland Parkway to three lanes in the westbound direction. Turn lane improvements will be made at the intersection of Cumberland Boulevard and Cumberland Parkway.
Cumberland Boulevard will be widened to the northern side of the roadway such that the Cumberland Transfer Center is not impacted. West of the I-285 Bridge, new signage will be installed, and Cumberland Boulevard will be restriped to better delineate the left turn lanes for Spring Road and the through lanes for the Spring Road and Cumberland Boulevard intersection.
New sidewalk will be constructed along the northern side of Cumberland Boulevard from Akers Mill Road, across I-285, to Spring Hill Parkway. Drainage improvements also will be made.
Construction began in July 2016, and completion is expected in fall 2017.
