Document Description
The purpose of this project is to reduce accidents by adding an additional 5 feet of paved shoulder with rumble strips imbedded into the new shoulder pavement. The need for this project is due to the higher number of vehicles that are running off of the road yielding a higher average number of fatalities at this location when compared to the rest of the State Highway System. Additional changes in signing and striping will be required to convert the existing #3 lane to an exit only lane for northbound traffic (southern end of the project). All work is taking place within the existing roadway prism. There is no excavation beyond the depth of the existing structural section. Fill slopes will catch at or near the existing catch points in the median of the highway. No vegetation will be removed. There is less than 1.0 acre of disturbed area. NO disposal site will be needed.
