Refugee Road Sidewalk and Shared-Use Path

Project Scope: The project will create new and upgraded pedestrian facilities along Refugee Road between Winchester Pike and Hamilton Road, connecting with infrastructure improvements planned for Hamilton Road between Interstate 70 and Refugee Road. The finished project will enable pedestrians and bicyclists to reach retail, churches, post office and other establishments without traveling in the street or berm. The project between Hamilton Road and Winchester Pike will:

  • Build sidewalks on the south side and a shared-use path on the north side of Refugee. The path will be wider than the sidewalk and is intended for pedestrians, joggers and bicyclists.
  • Construct Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections
  • Create new COTA bus stops

Estimated Costs:

  • Design: $750,000
  • Right-of-Way Acquisition: $575,000
  • Construction: $4.1 Million

Current Status: In Acquisition


  • Design:  Scheduled to finish Winter 2019
