2. We don’t understand how long construction will take? Some reports are five years, some are seven years. Where is the schedule? What is the real cost of the project if $350M is ONLY the first phase listed on your website?
DOTD is working on construction sequencing. The majority of the work east of the Mississippi River is expected to have a construction time frame of up to seven years depending on the complexity of the segment. The work west of the Mississippi River would be initated as the construction on the east side is nearing completion. An Opinion of Probable Cost is under development and will be included in Environmental Assessment.
