Project information

Road and drainage improvements project is complete

County Road 15 now open to traffic

Crews reopened County Road 15 between Dalchow Road/Market Avenue and Westedge Boulevard yesterday. The road and drainage improvements project is now complete.

Crews worked steadily on the project over the past month to replace the nine aging culverts and repave County Road 15. For this project, they used a paving method called full-depth reclamation. It takes a little bit longer than traditional mill and overlay paving, but it provides a longer-lasting pavement, saves costs and saves natural resources by recycling materials.

These road and drainage improvements will help protect the road base, reduce drainage issues and improve the longevity of the road.

Project improvements

  • New road base offering a stronger road foundation 
  • New pavement providing a smoother ride
  • New culverts reducing drainage issues and protecting the road base
  • New shoulders providing improved road drainage and up to two feet of space for vehicles to pull over as needed
