Notes:

1 - Costs in millions (1999 dollars). All costs include preliminary engineering, construction, right-of-way acquisition, and ITMS improvements.

2 - Sidepath: A pathway designated for pedestrians and bicyclists that is physically separated from traffic by an open space or barrier. A sidepath is at least 10' wide.

3 - Access Management: Access management limits and/or removes the number of points at which a vehicle may enter or exit a highway. It may include combining entrances and parking lots and adding service roads.

Scheduling and scope of projects is based on the Project Team's best estimate and is subject to change based on results of monitoring
