North of Stevensville - North
The project is located on Secondary-203 (Eastside Highway) and begins at Reference Post (RP) 4.0, about 3.7 miles north of Stevensville, and about 0.1 miles south of Wildfowl Lane and Moiese Lane. It extends northerly 5.8 miles to RP 10.1, about 0.2 miles south of Hidden Valley Road. This project will tie to the Florence – East project that was constructed in 2014.
The project will reconstruct the road to a 44-ft. top width that will provide two 12-foot travel lanes, a 12-foot center/left turn lane, and two 4-foot shoulders. Roadside slopes and ditches will be revised to improve safety and the vertical alignment and drainage features will be upgraded throughout the project. The 90° horizontal curves at Rathbun Lane and Ambrose Creek Road will be flattened. A graded platform for a future shared use path will not be included.
The project will require extensive right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation.
