This is a Highways for Life Project and includes innovative materials and techniques such as asphalt cement treated base course, plastic culvert pipes, precast segmental gravity retaining walls, and overlaying the roadway between Line Avenue and Fern Avenue with an open grade friction course. The OGFC is used to reduce the wheel noise produced by vehicles. Initial sound measurements were made before beginning work and final measurements will be made after all work is completed. Subcontractors include T. L Wallace construction for the bridge widening, E. J. Brennaman for placement of the OGFC and Hope Contractors for the traffic signals. Henderson Construction Services, Inc. is constructing the concrete sidewalks and driveways. Traffic control signs and barricades are furnished by B&B Rentals and Sales. Stars and Stripes Traffic Systems is responsible for installation of the permanent traffic markings.
