Cape Saint Claire Road Widening and Water Transmission Main
The Cape St. Claire Road widening is a Highway Safety Improvement project. The segment of road is narrow and has no shoulders. The emergency response vehicles based out of the Cape St. Claire Fire Station have difficulty passing. There is limited sight distance for drivers entering the roadway and minimal pedestrian access.
Currently water services is not available for the Fire Station, shopping center or the residences between Saint Claire Court and the shopping center.
This widening project will improve the ability for emergency response vehicles to travel through this roadway segment and improve sight distances at driveways and intersections.
The added curb and gutter will improve drainage both within the roadway and on adjacent properties. There will be a new sidewalk on the east side and a hiker-biker trail on the west side for improved pedestrian access. A Step Pool Conveyance System will treat storm water runoff.
The new 12-inch water main will extend from Saint Claire Court to the center entrance of the shopping center. Connections for individual residences will be brought to the property line, and residents will be given the opportunity to connect, at their convenience. Connection will also be brought to the property line for the shopping center.
