WestBranch


Project Status

Under-construction

Project Update (12/6/17)

Robert Walker Drive is scheduled to be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic until February, 2018. Work was anticipated to be completed by the end of December; scheduling conflicts with utility providers has delayed the road opening approximately one month. In that time vehicle traffic will be shifted onto Westbranch Parkway over to Davidson-Concord Road (see area highlighted in orange on Diagram below).  Pedestrian traffic will be able to access the greenway using the new sidewalk along Davidson-Concord Road from the intersection of Robert Walker Drive (see area highlighted in orange on Diagram below).

Detailed Robert Walker Drive Closure Map

During this upcoming fall, likely in October or November, the road construction connecting WestBranch to Hudson Place will occur. This will require the removal of vegetation on the west side of Kincaid Trail in order to complete this road; width of clearing will be approximately 100 feet wide. A portion of the Kincaid Trail in this area will be closed for approximately three months as this road connection is constructed.

It is anticipated that a portion of the Kincaid Trail will be closed as the road connecting WestBranch to Hudson Place is constructed in the fall of 2017. The Town is working with the developer to minimize the downtime of the closure.

In the long-term, once slopes have been stabilized on site, a greenway buffer will be installed in accordance with approved master plan. The images below provide some additional information on these buffers.
