Stormwater management and riparian environmental permitting through the Department of Development and Environmental Concerns were major components to this project due to a series of detention facilities, floodways and wetlands along the corridor with potential sensitivity and impacts, permitting requirements and possible mitigation. Improvements included roadway widening to accommodate two through lanes in each direction, separated by a flush median/left turn lane, intersection improvements at various locations, resurfacing, traffic signal modernization, retaining walls and extension of the box culvert along Lies Road.
