Bear Lane to Old Brownsville Road
This project is to construct Segment 1 and Segment 2 simultaneously. This project will reconstruct the existing Junior Beck Drive (Segment 1) with a two-lane roadway, curb & gutter, sidewalks, ADA ramps, pavement markings, signage, utility improvements include upgrades to water, wastewater, storm water, gas and build the new roadway (Segment 2) from the dead end to Old Brownsville Road with a two-lane roadway, safety illumination, cross culverts, and drainage swales on both sides. This project will improve road access and promote further development and growth in the area.
Segment 1: Junior Beck Drive from Bear Lane to Dead End is classified as a minor residential collector with 0.622 miles in length.

Junior Beck Drive currently supports industrial and commercial activity with heavy commercial vehicle traffic with only one access point from Bear Lane.
