About the Project


The Road Safety Program - Guardrail & 218th Av E (CRP 5831 & 5833) involves installing guardrail and guardrail reflectors at various locations (or "Groups") throughout the County.

Two dynamic warning signs will be constructed at a curve on 218th Ave. E., approximately 1,850 feet south of 40th St. E., and are supplemental to the existing turn signs.
