The Preserve Boulevard Improvement Project includes the following primary components:
- Prairie Center Drive/Preserve Boulevard intersection improvements.
- Addition of a second southbound lane on Preserve Boulevard and associated intersection improvements at Anderson Lakes Parkway.
- Addition of left turn lanes at all intersections along Preserve Boulevard and center medians along the full length of the roadway.

Preliminary Private Utility Relocation
Preliminary private utility work is ongoing along Preserve Boulevard in preparation for the City construction project. Private utility companies such as CenterPoint Energy, Comcast, Xcel Energy and others are relocating their utility lines out of the way of the proposed roadway improvements. This work will include lane closures as well as pedestrian facility closures and detours.
