The existing Johnsontown Road was characterized as a narrow, heavily traveled, two-lane roadway with steep drop-offs and deep raodside ditches. The new Johnsontown Road has a three-lane curb and gutter section providing greater access to the numerous homes and churches within the project corridor and allows for greater traffic flow. In addition, the new sidewalks and bike lanes provide greater pedestrian and rider access in the area. The project also included two new storm sewer and sanitary sewer systems and two bridge deck replacements.
