Syene Road: McCoy to Aurora

The City of Fitchburg is planning improvements to Syene Road, from Aurora Avenue to McCoy Road. Project concepts include:
  • Conversion of the rural roadway to an urban roadway with curb and gutter and storm sewer. The roadway concept includes 1 vehicle lane and 1 bicycle lane in each direction, with a median in some locations.
  • Intersection improvements at Lacy Road, East Cheryl Parkway, Ninebark Drive and McCoy Road. Remaining intersection may include turn lanes and will be designed to promote bicycle/pedestrian connectivity between neighborhoods.
  • Stormwater improvements.
  • Sanitary sewer and watermain replacement at select locations.
