Mulligan Road/Jeff Todd Way Set to Open!

The Mulligan Road - newly renamed Jeff Todd Way - saga is set to come to an end very soon.  The new road will run from the Roy Rogers in Woodlawn to the bottom of the large hill on Telegraph Road just south of Hayfield Secondary School.  It is a hugely needed improvement for East-West traffic flow in the Mt. Vernon-Lee Area. 

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) advised me today that the road will be open on August 18, 2014 with a ribbon cutting on August 25, 2014.  Here's some older articles I've written about it:



On Sunday, August 10, 2014, I "inspected" the new road on my bike with my new GoPro camera.  You can see my video at 4x speed below the flip (sorry there is no music).






The road is a MUCH needed connection between 22309 and the Hayfield/Kingstowne area.  It's about 2.5 miles long and is looking great. 

It includes a mixed use path along the south end which the FHWA says the contractor is striving to complete by opening. 

It road was funded by Federal, State and Local government, and took forever to finish for a number of reasons, but it's done.  You can read more information about the project here:

The new shopping center at Beulah Road and Telegraph Road is starting to take shape including numerous "Wegman's towers."  Relief is finally coming to 22309.
