The project is set to begin the final design phase. Over 300 survey questionaires were received for the public during the comment period following the public meeting on April 30th. Considering those comments, project estimates, and engineering analysis, the Project Team has chosen Alternative 2 as the preferred alternative. The preliminary view of Alternative 2 can be reviewed at the link on this page. It uses a 5-lane typical section with a sidewalk on one side and shared use path on the other side. From here, the project team will be working on the detail design of that alternative with efforts to minimize the impacts to the properties, utilities, and traveling public. This process takes months to accomplish. Final plans for public review will be ready around May 2020. The continued progress of the project will be dependent on continued funding in the State Highway Plan. Any questions about the project progress can be addressed to the Project Manager listed on this page.
