The project to add a 1,000-foot climbing lane to the west side of Powell Mountain in Lee County was awarded to Estes Bros. Construction, Inc., Jonesville, in July 2020. The project began December 2020.
The project will improve safety along Route 58 at Powell Mountain by giving passenger vehicles a safe way to pass trucks along the steep grade.
