A 5-foot sidewalk will be constructed along both sides of Hard Rock Drive and on the east side of Stoneridge Parkway, and a 10-foot greenway will be constructed on the west side of Stoneridge Parkway. Plans also include a new bus stop along Stoneridge Parkway and 549 parking spaces for Sam's Club.

Work on the actual Sam's Club is scheduled to start in October. It will be the newest addition to the Stoneridge Plaza and will include the big box store as well as a gas station on 136, 454 square feet of property.

The Sam's Club is expected to bring 150 to 175 full-time and part-time positions.
