Coleman Boulevard Improvement Project
For Facts, Two-Week Outlooks, Photo Gallery & More!
The Coleman Boulevard Improvement Projects are an important infrastructure project for the Town of Mount Pleasant. This $18.2 million project is being performed by Blythe Development of Charlotte, North Carolina and is expected to be completed in October 2019. The roadway portion of the total project cost is $14.74M and the utility portion is $3.46M.
This key infrastructure project involves reconstructing Coleman Boulevard between Mill Street and Pherigo Street to create stormwater, roadway and utility upgrades. An adaptive traffic signal system will be installed along Coleman Boulevard to streamline traffic flow and transit amenities such as bus pullouts and shelters will also be installed. Additionally, the project will provide increased travel opportunities for bicycles and pedestrians, decorative street lighting, a way-finding system, landscaped medians and a vibrant activity zone between the roadway and buildings fronting the street.
