The roadway will be widened to increase the shoulder width, minor alignment modifications will improve sight distance, full depth roadway reconstruction to lower a vertical crest/ improve sight lines, milling and resurfacing the roadway, and new accessible sidewalks. Bicycle accommodations will consist of a 5 foot shoulder. Funding for this project is currently allocated under the Fiscal Year 2019 of the State Transportation Improvement Program. Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2018 or early 2019.
