Route 8, Route 77 Improvement Project
The project proposes roadway improvements aimed at increasing driver visibility, including updated plans for Route 8 and realignment of Route 77 near the intersection with Route 8. Work will also include improvements to the roadway shoulders, upgrades to the guiderail and drainage, and a new flashing beacon at the intersection, which is located by the borders with Athens, Sparta and Rome townships.
Most of the work will
be performed off the roadway and will require traffic to be controlled by
flaggers. Separate Route 8 and Route 77 detours will be required for
approximately two weeks in order to complete work at the intersection. The
Route 8 detour will be posted using Route 6 and Route 89. The Route 77 detour
will be posted using Route 27 and Route 89.
Route 8 is used by approximately 3,100 vehicles daily, while Route 77 is used by approximately 1,600 vehicles daily, on average.
An updated timeline for the project anticipates work will take place during the 2023 construction season.
