About this project

This project will improve safety and traffic flow on Hwy 36, Hilton Trail, Highlands Trail and Demontreville Trail while reducing the amount of through traffic cutting through residential areas. It is the result of a corridor study that established a long-term plan for traffic improvements on Hwy 36 east of I-694. Visit our documents page for additional project maps.
