The contract is worth almost $65 Million, with three-quarters of the cost being funded by the state and the remaining costs being from local funds.

According to a statement released by the County Transportation and Land Management Agency, the project's goal is to “Provide uninterrupted and efficient access for motorists, residents, businesses, pedestrians, and emergency vehicles in the area.”

The project is set to begin at the end of summer and is expected to take two years.
