Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: none
Resource Area: Three Rivers

Summary: The proposal is to drill, blast, crush, stockpile, and haul up to 250,000 cubic yards (cy) of material over a period of time that would include material needed for longer-term maintenance. The material would be used to widen the road surface of Double O Road from up to 20 feet to 28 feet and overlaying up to 6 to 8 inches of material source on an existing 32-mile stretch of Double O Road. The project would also provide material for the Moon Reservoir Road as well as other roads. During the timing of the Double O Road project, the crest of the road at Cote Grade may be lowered and realigned to the east to improve road safety.
