05/18/17: Preliminary design is underway. Construction is scheduled to begin in August of 2018.
Project includes 236th Street in Jackson Township and spans from Deming Road to Tollgate Road (3.30 miles).
The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate 236th St east of US 31, from Deming Road to Tollgate Road, a distance of 3.3 miles. The scope is to widen the narrow lanes and add 6' paved shoulders. A 10' multiuse path will be added along the south side and improvements to side ditch drainage.
Reason for Project
The existing roadway possesses a narrow lane width, inadequate shoulders, and inadequate drainage features. In recent years this corridor has experienced an increased traffic volume which has necessitated a review of the current road conditions.
