A 13.6 mile stretch of Rochford Road in Lawrence County is scheduled to be refurbished in 2014 and 2015.
The county is set to contribute between $350,000 and $567,000 toward the $3 million project.
The project originally included a new asphalt overlay, but the project was downgraded to include just an extensive chip and seal resurfacing project and reconstruction of two curved sections of the road.
Plans also call for safety improvements including the installation of guardrails, signs and culvert extensions.
Lawrence County Highway Superintendent Allan Bonnema says the road gets a high volume of logging and he'd like it strengthened to carry heavier loads.
