Project Description

Desert View Drive (7.78 miles, approx. Station 1001+60-1396+00): This section of roadway will be 3R work and is comprised of asphalt without curb. The roadway width is 26 feet. Desert View Drive is a standard 2-lane corridor with pullouts. The roadway from approx. station 1039+50 to 1047+50 will be realigned. The realignment will shift the roadway to the south, providing a raised median between the roadway and the parking area. It is anticipated that minor roadway drainage improvements will be required.
