Seldon Road Extension Phase II - Windy Bottom Road to Pittman Road

Scope

The purpose of this project is to continue the roadway connection between Church Road and Pittman Road and represents the next link in an east-west corridor envisioned to reach from Palmer to Meadow Lakes. Design and construction is taking place in two phases, with the first phase beginning at Church Road and extending to the east end of Beverly Lake Road, was completed in 2015. The second phase will complete the connection to Pittman Road. A typical section of roadway would include two 12’-wide travel lanes, 8’ shoulders and a separated pathway.
