The project aims to expand the road from two to four lanes, realign the road from its current route through Edgewater Park to meet at Sorters McClellan Road, and create a bridge over the Union Pacific Corp. railroad. After an engineering firm is hired, the study will take approximately eight to 12 months to complete.
