What's being done?

Two miles of Route 603 (North Fork Road) in Montgomery County will be reconstructed to improve safety and traffic flow.  The purpose of the project is to provide a better connection between Route 11/460 and Interstate 81 at exit 128 (Ironto). 

The project entails bringing the existing two-lane roadway up to current design standards by 

  • Widening the travel lanes from nine feet to 12 feet
  • Constructing five-foot paved shoulders
  • Improving vertical and horizontal alignment
  • Replacing drainage structures
  • Adding a right turn lane from Route 603 onto Route 11/460
