Traffic Impacts

Traffic management alternatives such as off-peak/nighttime closures, off-peak/nighttime ramp detours, or a combination of approaches are currently being evaluated. The project construction is anticipated to last for five to six months. 

Access for residents, businesses, and emergency services will be coordinated and maintained throughout the project limits during construction.​


Project is scheduled for construction in 2027, but could be advanced to 2023, pending funding.​
