Jack Creek Road Safety Improvements - Notice of Construction Startup
Construction of the Jack Creek Road improvements is anticipated to begin on May 9, 2022, weather permitting, and wrap up by July 2022. Work will be taking place on Jack Creek Road from the intersection of Jack Creek Bench Road to the Moonlight Basin property access gate; approximately 3.1 miles in length. Road improvements will consist of adjustments to the horizontal road alignment to create a buffer from the top of the Jack Creek bank; widening the roadway to County standard width where viable, adjusting the horizontal and vertical grade at seven "blind" corner locations to provide increased sight distance; and improving roadside drainage. All improvements are designed to stay within the County's right-of-way.
Travelers using Jack Creek Road should expect delays and single-lane closures during construction. Jack Creek Road may be closed to through traffic for up to one-hour during the hours of 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
