If you have observed Birchwood Court (east of NW 86th Street and adjacent to the I-35/80 interchange in Johnston), you know that developments to the east have been a long time coming. Hurdles relating to the creation of a connecting road with NW 54th Avenue have finally been overcome with the approval of the the Birchwood Court Extension construction plans submitted by Hubbell Realty Company.
The City Council approved the plans at the meeting held on February 19, 2019. The proposed road would extend east from the current terminus of Birchwood Court and then bend north to NW 54th Ave. The connecting point to NW 54th Ave. would be located between Foxboro Road and the access roads for Lew Clarkson Park and Timber Ridge Elementary School. Construction plans also show a future access road from Timber Ridge to the new Carter Court (the north/south segment of the road extension. After construction, the City would assume maintenance of the road extension after four years.

With the road extension authorization and construction, Hubbell Realty Company can now move forward with plans to construct the first of two new 72,000 square feet flex office/commercial buildings. It also enables the creation of two new housing developments along Carter Court.
