I-99 set to open by year’s end – CDT
The latest update on i-99 progress — it is expected to open before the end of the year, but after football season. Parts of the new section may be limited to one lane each way until next spring too.
Don’t forget that this delay may have been avoided had standard environmental testing not been exempted by a rider placed by Bud Shuster, then chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, in an omnibus spending bill. By the way, Shuster has not responded to repeated inquiries from CDT reporter Mike Joseph to talk about this situation.
