project timeline
In 2018, we first applied for grant funding and initiated the design process for Western Gateway. In 2019, we held a design concept public meeting (Click here to view design concept public meeting slides). We have finished the design process and will be going out to bid for Western Gateway very soon. Construction is expected to begin spring 2022.Western Gateway timelinetraffic revisions
