Project Purpose & Details

The primary purpose of this project is to improve sight distance at the intersection of Route 614 (Twymans Mill Road) and Route 706 (Turner Drive) in Madison County.

Work will include re-grading Route 614 and modifying its side slopes with a goal of improving safety at the intersection.

The existing roadway is approximately 18 feet wide with variable shoulder widths. The road’s current condition impacts the available sight distance at the intersection.
