This is a City-led project as part of Restore Our Roads consisting of 3.4 miles of a new four-lane divided highway and 1 mile of roadway improvements along North Parkway to accommodate for this new intersection.

The Northern Bypass is designed to be part of the City’s future “loop” road, improving and connecting Research Park Boulevard to Martin Luther King Boulevard, Bob Wade Lane, North Memorial Parkway, to Winchester Road, U.S. 72 East, U.S. 431 South, Cecil Ashburn Drive, and South Memorial Parkway.


The design and right-of-way acquisition are approximately 95% complete for the project.

The City approved a funding agreement Dec. 16, 2021, to use Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) funds for utility relocations as part of the future Northern Bypass. The estimated cost of the relocations is $7 million.

The funding consists of 80% federal funds with a 20% local match. These funds, along with the $30 million approved at the Dec. 2 City Council meeting, will allow the remaining phases of the project to move forward.

The road construction contract will be bid in 2023, and utility relocations will be concurrent with construction. The estimated construction time is three years and will include 1 mile of road improvements along U.S. 231 (Memorial Parkway) to accommodate the new intersection.
