241 TOLL ROAD EXTENSION BEGINS AT TRESTLES
In what many view as a complete victory for the Transportation Corridor Agency, Construction began on the 241 Toll Road extension Monday morning. A loophole in the law allowed the construction to get underway and continue until completion. The loophole was best explained By Local Attorney Stephen Colby Klink, "Although the project has been blocked from extending, It was never blocked as a separate project starting at Trestles and continuing inland until it reaches the existing road". Kiewit Pacific Corp in a short bid process won the 641 million dollar project will be handling the construction. Many People decried the project as it has divided a community for nearly a decade, but now appears the fight is over and has been won by progress. Clearing of the land began this morning and will continue until completion.
