Carlotta Shoulder Widening Project
Carlotta Shoulder Widening Project proposes safety improvements on Route 36 between Hill Lane near Hydesville and Wilson Lane in Carlotta (postmiles 3.9 to 6.0). These upgrades include six-foot minimum shoulders, rumble strips, guardrail upgrades, culvert replacements, a westbound passing lane extension at Ward Creek, a new bridge with a curve improvement at Ward Creek, a new maintenance turnout, and a curve improvement near Monroe Lane.
The draft environmental document, an Initial Study with Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND), was circulated for public comment in September 2022.
Environmental studies and preliminary design are scheduled to be completed in April 2023, and construction is scheduled for summer 2024.
