MOVEBR Project Breaks Ground

South Choctaw Drive (Flannery – Central Thruway) Project ground break

The MOVEBR Program broke ground on the South Choctaw Drive (Flannery – Central Thruway) Project to increase roadway capacity with the goal of reducing congestion, providing accommodations for pedestrians and cyclists, and improving drainage.

On Friday, September 23rd Mayor-President Broome and the MOVEBR Program Management Team broke ground on another project. The South Choctaw Drive (Flannery – Central Thruway) Project began construction work in early August. This is a legacy Green Light Plan Project that was transferred to the MOVEBR Program. The roadway is currently two lanes from Larkswood Drive to just west of Central Thruway. It will be widened to a four-lane roadway by adding two 12’ travel lanes. Additionally, the improvements will include an asphalt overlay of the existing lanes, subsurface drainage, roadway lighting, and 5’ sidewalks on both sides of the roadway. The project was designed by Evans-Graves Engineers Inc. and the contractor is RJ Daigle & Sons Contractors, LLC. Construction is anticipated to be complete in the 4th Quarter of 2023. Once completed, South Choctaw Drive will be four lanes from Airline Highway to the Central Thruway. You can learn about the project here.
