New construction: Roy Rogers Road at Begenstos Farms, looking north
|The Roy Rogers Road project (formerly named the BBESS project) includes segments of Beef Bend, Elsner, and Scholls-Sherwood Roads between Highway 99 and Scholls Ferry Road. On 10/3/00, the Board of County Commissioners approved the Resolution and Order #00-153 renaming roads on this project to: Roy Rogers Road.
Construction began in February 2000 and was completed in January 2002. The completed project includes two improved travel lanes, intersection and safety improvements and widened shoulders the length of the corridor.
Funding was provided by the Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP 3) approved by Washington County voters in 1995.
