    Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll call the state first thing on Tuesday, when folks get back to work from the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

    I agree with Tom’s sentiments and also have a question: Do plans include lengthening the merge of the northbound on-ramp? Thank you for keeping us updated.

  4. Tom Hildreth says:

    I appreciate that you included the information on the overall bridge replacement project. Up to this point that has been missing on the reports of lane closures in the media coverage I have seen. That’s a really nice photo, too.
