Expansion and Safety Projects

 

Road expansion (new road construction or added travel lanes) and safety projects require the preparation of detailed design plans.  These projects are more expensive than road maintenance and surface treatment projects and often require the County to leverage state or federal funding to offset the design and/or construction costs.  When federal funding is utilized, the project development process takes much more time due to the additional requirements and approvals that must be met with the expenditure of federal funding.  The list below highlights the road expansion and safety projects that are already in or will soon be in the project development process.

 

CR 300S / 400S Connector

 

Project Description

New construction of a roadway connection CR 400S (Albert S. White) to CR 300S on the east side of Whitestown.  This project also included the construction of the new bridge over Jackson Creek (Boone County Bridge #190).  The corridor is being developed as a 2-lane roadway with the ability to easily expand to a 4-lane divided roadway in the future.
