The pavement along this stretch of State Route 531 was worn down after years of heavy use. This project resurfaced the roadway to reduce annual maintenance and repair costs, and to keep the highway safe for drivers.
Project improvements included:
- Contractor crews ground and resurfaced old pavement and repaired damaged areas of SR 531 from east of 43rd Avenue to just west of State Route 9.
- High visibility lane striping.
- Curb ramp areas at 67th Avenue rebuilt to current ADA standards.
A smoother roadway surface with few cracks and damaged areas improves traction and safety for drivers.
New reflective lane markings increases lane visibility for drivers, especially during adverse weather and at night.
The curb ramp areas at 67th Avenue have been brought up to current ADA standards to better serve users.
| Economic Incentive
This project will extend the useful life of the pavement by approximately 20 years.
