Project Purpose

The purpose of this project is to extend the life of the road by restoring it to a state of good repair, and upgrading chosen facilities to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990:

The pavement within the project limits is aging and will continue to deteriorate if left unchecked. Some pedestrian facilities and ADA ramps need to be upgraded to meet the current regulated standards. Drainage improvements will eliminate standing water.

The total cost of the Bishop Pavement Project is approximately $25 million.

  • $2.4 million is funded by Senate Bill 1.
