Meridian Intersection Improvements

Douglas County and the Meridian Metropolitan District are working together with the Southeast Public Improvement District (SPIMD) on implementing the intersection improvements.   Project partners recognize the benefits of advancing the proposed improvements which will re-align the short segment of Havana Street to better balance the heavy traffic volumes headed both to the east and to the west at the nearby Meridian Boulevard intersection, and re-align the Meridian Boulevard so the north-south heavier traffic volume becomes the through movement.

Meridian / Havana Intersection Improvements (Updated Jan. 2021)

This $8.5 Million improvement project involves realigning Havana and Meridian Boulevard in order to reduce congestion and improve safety and traffic operations.  In 2020, the District’s consultant delivered the preliminary design and the County’s consultant completed a detailed surface utility investigation. The final design consultant selection process was completed in December 2020, and the County anticipates final design will get underway in February 2021.

The first phase of construction is anticipated to begin in late summer 2021, which is needed in order to relocate several utilities that conflict with the proposed improvements.  The second and final phase of construction is anticipated to get underway in spring/summer 2022, pending completing the required utility relocations.
