While the project description currently reads as “widening to multi-lanes”, more targeted and nuanced improvements are likely to take place between I-240 and Biltmore Avenue in lieu of a full widening, including a new a bridge over the French Broad River, upgrading the intersections as well as adding bicycle lanes and sidewalks.  A raised median to improve traffic flow and turn lanes will be considered.
