SR-18 Raised Curb Median Victorville
The project proposes to widen the existing State Route 18 (SR-18) to provide two-foot inside shoulders and construct an eight-foot raised curb median from Amargosa Road to Colbalt Road. SR-18 will remain a four lane conventional highway. The project also proposes to reconstruct sidewalks, driveways, and curb ramps, extend and/or replace drainage systems, and guardrails.
Purpose & Need:
The proposed raised curb median is intended to reduce the incidence of cross-median collisions between opposing vehicles on State Route 18 by means of a physical barrier.
