The goal of the Douglas Road Improvement Project is to improve the safety, connectivity, and efficiency of passenger cars, trucks, buses, cyclists and pedestrians. By providing an improved, aesthetically pleasing corridor, the entire industrial sector in the Cypress Lakes Industrial Park will be energized. The City has received a $1,000,000 state appropriation for the construction portion of this project. Design was completed in 2020. The first phase of construction began in 2022.
