Project Overview

Sargent reconstructed and rehabilitated Route 3, beginning 0.57 miles west of Sand Point Road and extending 4.8 miles to Route 233. We performed utility work during the span of the whole project, along with clearing and drainage work along the highway.

We made a wide variety of improvements to Route 3 during the course of this project. Our crews paved a new road surface, improved drainage and runoff management systems, and installed a new rock catchment area along the bluffs. In addition, we paved new sidewalks, new shoulders for bicyclists and pedestrians, and a new multi-use path. We also updated existing sidewalks to meet ADA standards, built a three-foot-wide esplanade between the path/sidewalk and the road, and installed safer crossings with electronic crossing signs.
