Widening of Brawley Highlights

Project Highlights
Sidewalks will be built on both sides.

Sharp curves along Brawley School Road will be improved.

The median will prohibit left turns into and out of individual properties along the project. Motorists will be prohibited from making left turns into and out of some of the intersecting roads with Brawley School Road. At these roads, motorists will be required to turn right onto Brawley School Road and proceed to the next intersection where they will be permitted to make a left turn with an allowable U-turn.

Traffic counts on Brawley School Road range from 7,800 to 31,900. Traffic counts are expected to reach 9,200 to 44,700 by 2030.

Two sections of Brawley School Road will be widened. Construction on the first section began the week of November 3, 2008. This 3.8-mile section is from south of Southfork Road to east of Williamson Road. Construction on the next section is anticipated to begin in Spring 2009. This section will be widened from Williamson Road to Talbert Road.
