Barlow Rd - Zimmerman Rd Intersection Improvements

Transportation Engineering Road Project

Project Description: This project will improve safety at the Barlow Road/Zimmerman Road intersection by reconstructing Barlow Road to current ASHTO standards. Improvements will include reconstructing and realigning 1400 feet of Barlow Road. This prompts some minor reconstruction of Zimmerman Road. Some shoulder widening, cut slopes being laid back, and redesigned/lowered profile will increase sight-distance. New paving and striping in the construction zone is scheduled to be complete by September 1, 2014 with the remaining work to be complete by the end of October.
