2022 construction summary and 2023 planned work

The 2022 construction season wrapped in mid-November, and with that comes an opportunity to give a summary of all the work that was completed. This construction summary is presented in visual format through a series of maps so that it is easy to see where the work was completed. In addition to an overview of 2022 construction, there is also an overview of 2023 construction.

 Construction will resume April 1, 2023 with lane closures and some access closures along the highway.
