This project will improve the intersection of South 40th Street and Wilderness Hills Boulevard with construction of a new roundabout. This roundabout will improve the safety of the motoring public and also include access to the future Wilderness Commons development to the west of South 40th Street.
This project will be completed in advance of separate upcoming project, 40th Street from Yankee Hill Road to Rokeby Road. The roadway improvements constructed for the South 40th Street and Wilderness Hills Boulevard roundabout are being constructed in such a way to tie directly into the future 40th Street project – only asphalt transitions to the existing S. 40th Street will need to be removed in the future, saving costs.
The typical section for South 40th Street at the Wilderness Hills Boulevard Roundabout will be one lane in each direction with a raised center median.
This project is being funded 100% by the adjacent developers as a Developer Loan. The low bid received in November 2020 was $1,696,915.85.
Project design was completed in October 2020. Construction began in February 2021 and was completed in August 2021.
Construction was coordinated with adjacent projects, including Yankee Hill between S. 40th and S. 48th Streets, and Rokeby Road between S. 33rd and S. 40th Streets.
