Scope of Work

This project will partially replace the intersection of Highway 61 and Spring Creek Road with a signalized intersection configuration. Portions of Spring Creek Road (County Road 53) and Spring Creek Avenue will be reconstructed with this project, and North and South Services Drives will be extended to complete the frontage road system. Driveways accessing Highway 61 and the Carol Lane crossover will be eliminated. Items that will be completely replaced in the project area include:

  • curb/gutter
  • lighting 
  • storm sewer
  • pavement

Improved Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) pedestrian facilities are being expanded with the addition of sidewalks along all roadways in the project.
