Project Benefits


The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the roadway to a state of good repair, improve the operational performance of State Route 119 within the project limits, incorporate Complete Streets features for pedestrians and bicyclists, and reduce flooding issues within the project limits.


The condition of the pavement within the project limits has deteriorated due to storm damage and the volume of truck traffic. This has resulted in increased costs to maintain the existing pavement. Restoring the roadway to a state of good repair would minimize maintenance costs and result in smoother pavement surfaces that could lead to improved vehicle operations, reduced emissions, and reduced energy consumption.
