Jefferson County is seeking input from the community concerning the revised project scope and schedule. The county appreciates residents taking time to learn about the proposed construction project and completing the attached survey. The survey will be open for residents to submit until September 29. Survey data is being collected to ensure the project is able to address the needs for the community and to make the county aware of concerns residents have about the project and its construction.
Take the survey.

Jefferson County went out to bid for construction of the Jefferson County Highway 73 roadway project in July 2023. Not enough contractors were interested in bidding for the project. Therefore, Jefferson County canceled the bidding process.
The county will adjust the scope of work and schedule for construction of the roadway improvements based on feedback received from contractors and upcoming public meetings. The earliest this project can start is spring 2024. Next steps for construction will be posted to this webpage.
Gas Lines: Work related to gas line service to the Sheriff building will be completed the week of September 4. This will include backfilling potholes and revegetation. This will be night work. There will be no work the nights of September 1,2, and 3 due to the holiday weekend.
Electrical Lines: The contractor will be conducting tree removal operations on September 22 near Little Cub Creek for the relocation of overhead electrical lines. Work will occur outside of the roadway and will not impact traffic.

The county and engineering consultants designed the original scope of the project to run from the intersection of Jefferson County Highway 73 and State Highway 74 to south of Buffalo Park Road.
