The project includes the following segments:

Overall Segment View (pdf)

  • Segment 1 – Resurfacing an existing 2-lane open shoulder section of Byhalia Road just north of Holmes Road. This segment is contained within existing right-of-way, is approximately 0.30 miles in length and acts as a transition into segment 2. Segment 1 (pdf)
  • Segment 2 – Resurfacing an existing 5-lane curb and gutter section of Byhalia Road bordered by the Southridge subdivision on the west and Estanaula Trails subdivision on the east. The typical section for this segment will include two 11-foot (minimum) travel lanes in each direction with the outside lane in each direction being 13-feet wide to allow for a bicycle lane. It will also include a 12-foot continuous two-way center turn lane. This segment is contained within existing right-of-way, is approximately 0.45 miles in length, has existing 5-foot sidewalks on each side, and 40-foot landscape easements on each side. Segment 2A (pdf) Segment 2B (pdf)
  • Segment 3 – Widening an existing 2-lane open shoulder section of Byhalia Road south of E. Shelby Drive to a 5-lane curb and gutter section with 5-foot sidewalks on each side. The typical section would be the same as Segment 2 with a proposed right-of-way width of 84 feet. The amount of proposed right-of-way required for this segment is one acre (65% is to be dedicated). The segment is approximately 0.24 miles in length and contains a section along the west side bordering the Southridge subdivision that has already been widened. It also includes a proposed 40-foot landscape easement on both sides. Segment 3 (pdf)
  • Segment 4 – Widening an existing 2-lane open shoulder section of Byhalia Road (SR-175) north of E. Shelby Drive to a 6-lane curb and gutter section with a 28-foot raised median and a proposed right-of-way width of 115 feet. The amount of proposed right-of-way required for this segment is 5.3 acres (84% is to be dedicated). The typical section for this segment will include three 12-foot travel lanes in each direction with the outside lane being 16-feet wide to allow for a bicycle lane. Median openings and a 12-foot left turn lane will be provided at each side road. This segment is approximately 0.85 miles in length and contains a section along the east side bordering the Preserve at Oak Grove subdivision (Oak Grove PD Phase 1) that has already been widened. It also includes a proposed 40-foot landscape easement on both sides. Segment 4A (pdf) Segment 4B (pdf) Segment 4C (pdf)
  • Segment 5 – Extension of E. Shelby Drive (proposed SR 175) from Woodgrove subdivision (Oak Grove PD Phase 4) on the west side of Byhalia Road to connect with the intersection of Byhalia Road and E. Shelby Drive on the east side of Byhalia Road. The typical section for this segment will include three 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, an 18-foot raised median, 5-foot sidewalks on each side and a proposed right-of-way width of 114 feet. The amount of proposed right-of-way required for this segment is 2.6 acres (51% is to be dedicated). This segment is approximately 1,000 feet in length and will remove the existing 300 foot offset between the two intersections of Shelby Post Road (SR 175)/E. Shelby Drive and Byhalia Road making it a much safer single intersection. Segment 5 (pdf)
  • Segment 6 – Widening E. Shelby Drive from Byhalia Road (SR 175) to Deep Woods Road, which has been widened on the north side already. The typical section for this segment will include three 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, an 18-foot raised median, 5-foot sidewalks on each side and a proposed right-of-way width of 114 feet. The amount of proposed right-of-way required for this segment is 0.6 acres (100% is to be dedicated). This segment is approximately 700 feet in length and will include 40-foot landscape easements on each side. Segment 6 (pdf)

Purpose and Need

This project was initiated at the request of the Town of Collierville. The Town of Collierville, Memphis/Shelby County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) have collaborated throughout the development process to ensure that the transportation needs envisioned by the local community are coordinated. This project is on the Town of Collierville’s Major Road Plan and the Memphis Urban Area 2030 Long Range Transportation Plan as an existing congested corridor.
