About the Project
The Road Safety Program - Guardrail & 218th Av E (CRP 5831 & 5833) involves installing guardrail and guardrail reflectors at various locations (also called "Groups") throughout the County, along with two dynamic warning signs in Group 10.

The two dynamic warning signs in Group 10 will be located on a curve on 218th Avenue East, approximately 1,850 feet south of 40th Street East, and are a supplement to the horizontal alignment signs that are already in place.
