About the Project

This project will focus on a 1.5” hot mix asphalt overlay and installing guardrail that will meet the new safety standard requirements.  The HMA will add approximately 10 years of life to the highway, a smoother road surface and will eliminate ruts and road damage.  The new guardrail will be 31” high instead of 27” high to help vehicles remain on the road more effectively, making the highway safer for the traveling public.
