PROPOSAL:  The proposed improvements will be a full depth reclamation of deteriorated and patched pavement, HMA binder and top course with tack between layers.  Tree canopy will be cut back to allow sunlight to dry out sections of the road.  Drainage will be improved and all culverts will be replaced.  Deteriorated guardrails will be replaced with steel guardrails. The roadway will also be widened in areas to help with drainage.   This project will be completed to enhance and retain the natural beauty of Otis
