The approximately 6.7-mile project will resurface the existing roadway, update the curb ramps to meet current ADA standards, repair existing cattle passes (tunnels under roadway for cattle), and replace deteriorating culverts along the project length. This project may require the acquisition of right-of-way and temporary limited easements for construction.
