The project consists of upgrading the existing SR-247 by constructing an 8-foot asphalt concrete shoulder along each direction of travel on the SR-247. The project will also construct rumble strips on the existing and proposed shoulders along the SR-247 (Project). The original SR-247 was constructed with multiple Arizona crossings as well as one culvert. As part of the Project the one culvert located at 34`20'6.69"N, -116`29'26.77"W will be replaced to fit the widening specifics; there will be no installation of rock slope protection associated with the new culvert.
