Johnston-Oehler Farm-to-Market
Johnston-Oehler Road
Farm-To-Market Project
This project will identify roadway infrastructure needs and deficiencies, recommend improvements that accommodate all modes of transportation, and develop a project design concept that supports existing and proposed land uses.

What's happened? During the planning phase, the project team used the City’s Urban Street Design Guidelines (USDG)  to determine the best solution for the Johnston-Oehler corridor.   Three public meetings were held to discuss alternatives for improvement and present the recommended design.  The design contract was approved by City Council in April 2011 and the City’s engineering consultant, URS Corporation, began the design process.  Design is currently 70% complete. A drop-in public meeting was held February 23, 2012 to show citizens the proposed design of the Johnston Oehler Road Project. Click here to view the design.  Click here to view the project area map.

What's next? 
The bid phase has begun for the Johnston Oehler Road Farm-to-Market project.  During this phase, the City takes competitive bids from responsible contractors to perform the construction work.  Construction begins after City Council approves selection of the lowest responsible bidder.

The goal of this project is to make improvements to Johnston-Oehler Road from Prosperity Church Road to Mallard Creek Road that will better serve the community and all roadway users including residents, businesses, motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and commuters.  Public input will be an integral part of this process. 

Proposed improvements include:

  • bicycle lanes
  • sidewalks
  • planting strips
  • landscaping
  • curb and gutter
  • storm drainage infrastructure
  • medians, signalization, and crosswalks
A thorough review and analysis of existing conditions compared to current and future land uses and transportation needs will be conducted.

Cost:  $14,769,000
Please note this is the funding amount and includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, acquiring the right of way, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, signalization, permits and landscaping.  Additional funding may be identified after the planning phase.

The Engineering & Property Management (E&PM) project team will manage the Johnston-Oehler Road FTM Project through a four stage process. Click here to learn how City projects are selected, designed and built.
