Increased construction activity continues in the median and at the bridges along the Segment III corridor, spanning approximately 1 mile west of Route 199/Lightfoot (Exit 234), to 1 mile west of Route 199, Humelsine Parkway / Marquis Center Parkway (Exit 242).

will be incorporated into the roadway layers in Segment III. (
