Nelson Dr. & Meadowlark Blvd. Improvement Project Begins April 24

Nelson Dr. and Meadowlark Blvd.
The Nelson Dr. and Meadowlark Blvd. Improvement Project begins Monday, April 24. The project will realign Nelson Dr. away from the K-15 & Meadowlark intersection. Traffic will be maintained on Meadowlark Blvd., but sections of Nelson Drive will be closed during construction.

The new road will curve east around the back side of Burger King, QuikTrip and Ultra Modern Pool & Patio. Nelson Dr. will be a two-lane road with curb and gutter and an improved drainage system. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Access to adjacent properties will be maintained throughout construction. Access from the existing Nelson Dr. will be restricted, and the connection from Overlook Dr. to Meadowlark Blvd. via Fulton Dr. will be closed. Traffic impacts to K-15 and Meadowlark Blvd. should be minimal.

“This project is a result of a traffic study that showed the crash rate at the intersection to be more than triple the rate commonly experienced at urban intersections on the state highway system,” said Dan Squires, City Engineer. “The project will go a long way to improve safety and traffic flow.”
