90% Design
The 90% design for Phase 1 is underway and will continue in 2020 and 2021. During the 90% design phase, the traffic control and detour routes are determined, storm sewer pipe sizing, stormwater facilities, retaining walls, and the pedestrian bridge are all designed.

Phase 1 construction plans will be complete by February 1, 2022

Public Informational Mailer

The project team will send out a public postcard in the fall of 2020 informing residents, property owners, and businesses about the design moving forward in 2021. The real estate process will begin in 2022 for portions of the project that require real estate transactions with adjacent property owners.
