Alternate Routes for Consideration:
This project provides for reconstruction on Hwy 66 North between
US Hwy 6 and Interstate 80.
The highway will be reconstructed
to conform to current highway standards, providing safer and
smoother curves and increased sight distances on the hills.
Hwy 66 will bypass the residential
area and be relocated to the intersection of US Hwy 6 and Hwy 63,
which leads directly into Ashland’s business district.
Project So Far
The project began June 2004, with
work being performed off the roadway. Box culverts, pipes, and fills
were constructed with no impact to traffic. Over the winter, the
“settlement period” allowed the sub-surface to compact and settle to
a stabile surface for the new roadway.
Beginning April 4, 2005, the work on
the roadway will begin. This includes the removal of the old road,
construction of box culverts and pipes, and regrading of the old
roadway surface to achieve a flatter profile.
Depending on weather conditions, it
is anticipated that the road will be open to traffic by mid-August
with minimum surfacing. The remainder of the asphalt surface, along
with the finish work, will be completed with the road open to
General information will be posted as
the project develops.
