STATE HIGHWAY 18 AND APPLE VALLEY ROAD INTERSECTION REALIGNMENT ENVIRONMENTAL AND CIVIL DESIGN PROJECT
Description: This is an environmental and civil design project to reconstruct, realign and widen the intersection of Highway 18 and Apple Valley Road. A qualified engineering consultant has been selected to provide the professional and technical services required to design complete construction plans and prepare specifications and engineer's estimate (PS&E) for the Town. This project includes, but is not limited to, drainage improvements, road improvements and traffic signal improvements. The primary goal is to have shelf-ready plans for State or Federal funding to be able to construct and realign the portion of Apple Valley Road that is north of Highway 18 to line-up directly with the portion of Apple Valley Road that is south of Highway 18.
Status: This project is currently in design by Town consultant Dokken Engineering and preliminary plans have been prepared by the consultant. The project has obtained environmental clearance and this design project continues to move forward as scheduled.
