The existing 143rd Street two lane pavement was removed and replaced with a bituminous pavement to provide a four lane roadway with left turn lanes.

Several areas of subgrade exhibiting poor soil conditions needed to be undercut and filled with porous granular embankment to provide a stable road bed.

The existing Will-Cook Road pavement was milled to various depths to provide a smoother profile and resurfaced with 2” of bituminous surface course.
