The construction on Capital Circle spanning from I-10 to Orange Avenue is a two and a half year project to expand the nearly three mile stretch from two lanes to four lanes.
Blueprint 2000 is partnered with the Department of Transportation in the first portion of this project that stretches from I-10 to Highway 90.
Jim Davis, Executive Director of Blueprint 2000 says, "A segment that our elected officials have prioritized as the most important segment because we want to be able to get commerce from the airport out to I-10."
The total cost of the road construction is $84 million, and the official groundbreaking ceremony is set for November 21.
