Rim Rock Drive
This project will include drainage corrections as appropriate including reestablishment of roadside ditches with appropriate rip rap where needed for 4.6 miles of Rim Rock Drive beginning at the east entrance. Areas of possible subgrade problems will be investigated and sub excavation or other treatments completed, as appropriate. The existing pavement will be pulverized and overlaid with new asphalt. Finished pavement elevation along historic stone walls will be evaluated to see if lowering the roadway profile to a more historic elevation is feasible. At the East Entrance Station, concrete stop pads with built-in speed bumps will be placed on both inbound and outbound lanes. The concrete bumper curb around the island will also be replaced.
