The main news I got out of watching the video, is that there is a two pronged approach to fixing Highway 37-one short term relief and the other is the more “utopian” permanent fix of this corridor. The short term relief is moving forward now-environmental studies to a proposed improvement to the 121/37 intersection at Sears Point plus the widening of 37 and the installation of a movable barrier that will allow two lanes of traffic instead of the current single lane to be realized in the morning going east to west, and then in the afternoon the two lanes would be going west to east. Timeline is environmental studies and report complete this summer, approved by the end of this year, funding and final design in 2022-2023, going to bid in late 2023, construction in 2024, and fully operational to the public in 2025. Price tag between $250million and $400 million. That’s a lot of potential work for our guys!
That’s all folks!
