The project includes pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements along the corridor between College Avenue and Old Missouri Road as well as traffic flow improvements at critical intersections and drainage upgrades.
Rolling Hills Drive serves as an important east-west connection street that also provides access to adjacent neighborhoods and connects to Butterfield Elementary School. Rolling Hills Drive connects to Appleby Road, east of College Avenue, providing the only flat east-west bicycle route to the Razorback Greenway. The road currently carries about 10,000 cars per day. Improving this connection for traffic capacity and providing safe facilities for bicycles and pedestrians is a priority.
