Tanglebrook Subdivision

Project construction is underway at the intersection of Demorest Road and Chickasaw Drive. This intersection will be closed 7 a.m.-6 p.m., daily through mid-January. Drivers should follow posted detour signs. Upon completion of this phase, the northbound lane of Demorest Road, east of the islands, will be closed to traffic. Two-way traffic will be shifted to the west side of the island. Driveway access to all properties on the east side of the islands, as well as mail delivery and trash collection, will be maintained. The construction zone will be “rolling” as small sections are completed.

West Grove Subdivision

The project will proceed in phases starting at the southern border of the project. Demorest Road., between Chickasaw Drive and Rockledge Street will have lane restrictions and adjustments. Once construction reaches Grove City Road, Demorest Road will be restricted to northbound traffic only between Grove City Road and Basswood Avenue, with full closure to southbound traffic for the duration of the project. Project completion is anticipated by year-end 2022. Driveway access to all properties, as well as mail delivery and trash collection, will be maintained within the construction zone.

It is important to observe posted detours, from Basswood take Demorest Road north to Southwest Boulevard, east to Broadway, and south to Grove City Road.

The Demorest Road Corridor Improvements project will extend along Demorest Road between Chickasaw Drive on the south and Basswood Avenue on the north. The major construction activity will occur between Rockledge Street and Basswood Avenue, where the roadway will be widened and reconstructed to include a center turn lane with curbs, sidewalks, a shared-use path and new street lighting along with sanitary sewer, storm sewer and water main improvements. Additionally, a traffic signal will be added at the intersection of Demorest and Grove City roads. The area of the project that lies between Chickasaw Drive and Rockledge Street will be limited to sanitary sewer improvements and resurfacing of the existing roadway.
