Project Funding


Construction is taking place in 2024.

Access During Construction

Construction is being completed in segments to minimize the necessary closure length. Each segment will require a full closure while under active construction. Access for local residents will be maintained to the extent possible but some restrictions will be necessary. The traveling public is encouraged to find alternative routes and to use the WAZE app for assistance.

Access to sidewalks may be restricted during sidewalk curb ramp construction. One sidewalk path will remain open at all times during construction.

Public Open House

A pre-construction open house was held to provide information regarding the project and to allow the public an opportunity to provide feedback. Design information was displayed and personnel from the project team was present to address any questions, concerns or suggestions which the public may present.
