Traffic Impacts

Traffic control during construction has not yet been determined. Efforts will be made to minimize traffic impacts, including congestion, delays, and queuing. Impacts to transit may involve temporarily closing or relocating bus stops. Accommodations for pedestrians and bicyclists will be provided.

Public Involvement

As public involvement opportunities​ and materials become available, they will be posted below. As the project continues to move forward, your input is welcomed and appreciated throughout the design process.


Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2028.
