The project includes two areas of construction and incorporates infrastructure for all modes of travel. The Neff and Purcell intersection improvements addresses capacity, efficiency and safety issues at the intersection. The entire intersection will also be leveled to provide ADA compliant crossings. The Purcell Extension will construct the missing section of Purcell Boulevard between Holliday Avenue and Courtney Drive. This portion of the project will also include construction of sidewalks along both sides of Purcell Boulevard between Holliday Avenue and Full Moon Drive, where gaps currently exist. In coordination with the project improvements, the City’s Transportation and Mobility Department will be adding striping for on-street bike lanes on Purcell Boulevard from NE Butler Market Road to NE Robinson Street.

The Neff and Purcell project team has been in discussions with St. Charles Health Systems, the owner of the
land underlying the Purcell extension. These talks are proceeding well and a Development Agreement is
close to being finalized. The design for the extension is progressing in parallel to the Development
Agreement; the project team is at an approximate 60% design level and construction for the extension is
planned for the summer and fall of 2022 with the construction of the Neff and Purcell intersection to follow.
