This project expanded the two-lane rural section to a four-lane urban roadway consistent with the County Highway 27 Corridor Study between CH 21 and CH 44 in Credit River Township.

CH 27 is an important Minor-Arterial roadway serving eastern Scott County.  As part of the CH 27 Corridor Study, concepts were evaluated for the expansion of CH 27 to four-lanes with trail/sidewalk between CH 21 and CH 44 in Credit River Township.  

Purpose and Justification

This project improves safety and added capacity by providing turn lanes, center median, paved shoulders, and access management. This corridor also provides connectivity to two regional parks and currently has no trail/shoulder for bike or pedestrian movements.
