Rural Rustic Road reconstruction project on Route 906 (Rife's Ford Road) in the Middle River area of Augusta County. This project extends from Route 657 to Route 340. The road surface will be graded and widened to 16 feet, drainage will be improved and the road will receive a surface treatment pavement.
All work will be completed within the existing right-of way.
The total estimated cost for this project is $474,005 which includes $25,000 for preliminary engineering, $10,000 for right of way and $439,005 for construction.
The Rural Rustic road program provides cost efficient paving to unpaved roads, staying in the current right of way. Typically for a road to be eligible for the program it must be an unpaved road already within the state secondary system and carry no more than 1500 vehicles per day.
Benefits of Project
The Rural Rustic Road Program is a practical approach to paving Virginia's low-volume roads. It aims to keep traditional rural lane ambience, while improving the road surface within the current right-of-way.
Motorists should be alert for work zones with possible road closures and flagging operations.
