The reconstruction of County Road 43 involves the permanent, accelerated reconstruction of 9.5 miles of roadway between Drake and Glen Haven. The project involves building a more resilient County Road 43 by shifting the roadway away from the river onto bedrock and work to be done includes rock blasting, rebuilding bridges along County Road 43, embankment armoring, restoring the river in areas impacted by roadway construction and asphalt paving. In the fall of 2014, initial “seed project” work began along two sections of County Road 43 adjacent to U.S. Forest Service Land. At the same time this “seed project” work is being done, the project team is securing additional right-of-way along other parts of the corridor so reconstruction efforts can move to other locations along the project corridor.
