The Phase I Study of this project is nearing completion. During the Phase I Study, a Combined Design Report was completed for the project which examined alternatives for enhancing the traffic flow, upgrading safety within the corridor, and identifying any environmental impacts. The project is currently moving into Phase II, the design phase. This phase is funded, an engineering firm has been secured, and construction plans are being developed. Funding for the construction of this project has not been secured.
