Swan Creek Road

Project Description

The project is located on the 8.1-mile length of Swan Creek Road between 303rd Avenue within the Town of Akaska and the cattle grate at the Swan Creek Recreation Area (SCRA) entrance. Swan Creek Road is a chip sealed road (asphalt blotter road) with a 24-foot pavement width. Swan Creek Road allows access to Lake Oahe at SCRA and carries a significant amount of traffic, especially during the summer months. Akaska serves as a seasonal home for many avid sportsmen and the lake access at SCRA is the closest, most convenient location for this seasonal population to camp or launch a boat.

The project consisted of pavement reconstruction: pulverizing the existing blotter pavement in place; stabilizing and reshaping the subgrade with the grindings; overlaying the stabilized subgrade with a 4-inch depth of aggregate base; placing stabilized aggregate base; placing a chip seal pavement surface; replacing roadway signage; and restriping.
