"This actual work that we're doing is actually a bi-product of us being out there doing a larger 435 South Loop Link project ," MODOT Assistant District Engineer of Program Delivery Perry Allen said. "It's the improvement of the eight bridges along the corridor, improving the capacity and safety as far as for traveling public from State Line to the Three Trails Crossing interchange."
