This project is located on Route 33 (Rawley Pike) in western Rockingham County. This 1.25-mile long project extends from 0.5-mile east of Switzer Lake Road to Laurel Wood Lane. This location is near the West Virginia border in mountainous terrain with several sharp curves. Widening will be done to improve safety.

Route 33 is a two-lane roadway with shoulder width ranging from two feet to none. The existing roadway has a winding alignment typically found in mountainous terrain.

The proposed project will provide two 12-foot lanes and two four-foot paved shoulders. A 1000-foot long truck-climbing lane will be constructed on a straight section of roadway. Several curves will be widened and flattened to help with vehicle navigation.

The average daily traffic count for this portion of Route 33 is 2,054 vehicles per day.

The total estimated cost for this project is $9.4 million, including $1.1 million for preliminary engineering, $120,470 for right of way and $8.1 million for construction.


This project will widen Route 33 by adjusting roadway positioning and grade. These improvements will enhance safety as drivers travel across the mountainous terrain in this area.
