Next Steps

This study provides the framework for the long-term implementation of transportation improvements. The study recommendations may be constructed in separate project phases as funding is identified. Additional study, consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), may be necessary before improvements can be implemented, depending on the specific project and funding source. The subsequent project phases will move forward using the information and recommendations from this study.

Next steps include:

  • Secure necessary funding
  • Complete NEPA analyses, if required
  • Complete design
  • Obtain right-of-way
  • Complete construction

Currently, no funding is available for construction of the recommended improvements. The Town and Counties plan to continue with the necessary environmental and design work to position the improvements for funding as it becomes available. Once funding is available, the environmental process for project phases is expected to take 12 to 24 months. Design, right-of-way acquisition and construction could take 18 to 36 months or more, depending on funding availability and specific project elements.
