SR 63 Bridge Construction and Paving

The purpose of this project is to increase the viability of State Route (SR) 63 from the current two-lane format to a four-lane corridor. The improvements are intended to reduce crashes and address the immediate safety needs of the heavily-traveled corridor.

The Campbell County SR 63 portion of this 5.2-mile project consists of the grading, drainage, construction of a concrete box bridge and paving on SR 63 from near Frontier Road/Woodson Lane.

The Claiborne County SR 63 portion of this 5.3-mile project consists of the grading, drainage and paving on SR 63 from the Claiborne County line to Hall Lane.

Current Status: October 3, 2023

Phase 1 of the stream mitigation in Claiborne County has been completed. Phase 2 is currently underway. There have been 36 box culvert extensions put into place. Fiber relocation is underway. Water and electric relocation have been completed. Excavation and fill operations are continuing. Phase 1 paving of the AS Mix has been completed in Campbell County.
