The project consists of the widening of Opelika Road from Gentry Drive to Saugahatchee Road to create a new grassed median, bicycle lanes, left-turn lanes, sidewalk, pedestrian lighting, and roadway lighting. The project is part of the City of Auburn's CompPlan 2030, and Renew Opelika Road Plan.
Construction began in January 2021 and was expected to finish in October 2021. Due to delays, the project is now anticipated to be completed by summer 2022. JLD Enterprises, Inc. is the contractor for this project.
