Cecil Ashburn Drive

Posted on April 24, 2017

SUMMARY

This 3.4-mile project will widen Cecil Ashburn Drive, from two to four lanes between Old Big Cove Road and Four Mile Post Road, to improve traffic flow and incorporate safety improvements. The project includes eight-foot shoulders along each side of the roadway.


STATUS

The contractor remains on schedule to reopen two lanes of traffic in October 2019. The project is expected to be fully complete by May 2020.

Clearing operations and blasting are complete with the exception of minor adjustments as needed to finalize grading. Utility relocations are also near complete.

The contractor is approximately 90% complete with the storm drainage installation. Approximately 1,500 feet of water line installation is complete on the west side from Donegal. Water crews have moved to the east side near Sutton Road to begin work.

Additionally, the contractor has installed approximately 2,000 feet of asphalt on the east side along the new lanes and will begin placement of asphalt from the west side in late June 2019.
