This 1.77-mile-long project paves Route 699 from Route 753 to Route 613. The road surface will be graded and widened, 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 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.
