Reason for Project
Deterioration has occurred at various locations along the arch ring. Currently, the geometry of the structure is one-lane and has sight distance issues due to a rise on both sides of the structure.
The proposed design will widen the roadway and structure to two 12 foot lanes and a minimum 4-foot shoulder. The roadway will be elevated to eliminate any sight distance issues. The new structure will be able to accommodate a Q100 flood event with an additional two feet of free board for unexpected flood events.
