The Duck Lake Road serves as a significant farm to market and commercial freight and goods route in Central Lincoln County. It is also used by tourists who come to enjoy local community events and indirect access to public access on Federal and State Lands. The road serves as both a mail and school bus route as well as a main route for emergency service vehicles. The roadway is deteriorating rapidly. The horizontal and vertical alignment meet today's design standards. The sub-grade of this road appears to be stable and able to support current and future levels of traffic. However, the existing BST is aged and failing rapidly due to heavy agricultural and commercial traffic. The road has some edge cracking; longitudinal and transverse cracking; and wheel rutting as the primary deficiencies contributing to the pavement deterioration. The project will consist of: crack patch, asphalt patch and pre-leveling; slope treatments; removal/relocation of clear zone encroachments; culvert extensions; culvert end treatments; installation of guardrail where warranted; HMA thin-lift overlay; construction seal; pavement striping and sign upgrades. Completion of this project will prolong the life of the roadway, improve ride, and enhance safety.
