Description: This project is located in Keith County. This project is on N-61 and commences at the north end of Kingsley Dam and ends approximately 550 ft. north of the N-61/N-92 intersection.

New concrete pavement, roadway grading, and a new viaduct over the UPRR will be constructed. The new roadway and viaduct will be on the existing alignment. Improvements to N-61 will require reconstruction of approximately 800 feet of N-92.
The project will include new concrete pavement, asphalt overlays, and
