Construction of the Exit 16 DDI project will be completed in two phases under two separate construction contracts which will be executed sequentially. The project has been approved for winter work and construction on the initial phase will begin as early as the last week of January 2023. Phase 1 construction will consist of utility relocation, waterline replacement, utility duct bank installation, retaining wall construction, and some ledge removal.
The construction public meeting will be held in early to mid January and including a presentation on the project overview, construction schedule and sequencing, the anticipated impacts, and information about future blasting activities with the opportunity to ask questions of the project team and contractor. Additional information including the exact time, date, and location will be shared in supplemental notices as the information becomes available.
The second construction phase is anticipated to be advertised and awarded in Winter/Spring 2024 and completed by Summer 2026. Phase 2 construction will consist of the bulk of the roadway work including the installation of the DDI, the addition of turning lanes, and the implementation of the pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.
