Plans: Maps and Images

 

Roadway Improvements

One of the most dangerous elements of Dixie Highway is unrestricted crossings and mid-block turns that are common because the roadway lacks raised medians and defined locations for left turns.

The New Dixie Highway Project plans to add raised medians along much of the Central Section between Crums Lane and Greenwood Road.  

The medians, which will range from 3-foot-wide concrete raised medians to 15-foot-wide planted islands, will help focus traffic movements primarily at intersections and cross streets.

Medians and Sidewalks

 

The improvements will include wide, planted medians and narrow, concrete medians. Based on citizen feedback, the Project Team has chosen some native plants and grasses for planted medians. The project will also add trees at some bus stops. 

 

 

Transit Improvements

The New Dixie Highway Project will include the region’s first bus rapid transit route – a faster, more reliable bus line with state-of-the-art buses and three dozen bus stops and stations. The BRT line will be a new route with strategically located stops along Dixie Highway / 18th Street between the Gene Snyder Freeway and Broadway and into the downtown core.

At higher-volume locations, BRT stations may feature shelters with seating, real-time information about bus arrival times, trash receptacles and distinctive signage. At lower-volume locations, BRT stops may have signage and benches only.

The map at right shows the planned locations for BRT stops and stations.

Bus Rapid Transit

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) helps bus riders get to their locations faster and more reliably. And BRT can help overall traffic mobility, using technology to help buses load and unload faster and move along the route more swiftly.

Queue jumps are one of the technologies that give BRT buses a head start on other vehicles at some intersections. The new BRT buses will also communicate with the new traffic signal systems. Extended green lights, which can be controlled by on-board technology, can keep buses on time and traffic flowing.
