This major corridor expansion from a four-lane Interstate to a six-lane Interstate includes interchange work to facilitate the added lanes and create safety improvements. The project incorporates four separate Real Estate project IDs and 18 construction projects with PS&E dates ranging from summer 2015 to summer 2020. Real estate takings for the 124 parcels include Fee, TLEs, PLEs, Highway Easements, Access Rights and billboards. Schedules were expedited on a majority of the parcels with plats recorded to allow for six to seven months to acquire.

Unique components included: severance damages and signage relocation for a major truck stop; billboard and related property owner agreements/conveyances of purchase; personal property relocations of irrigation, buildings, business equipment; and acquisition of ponds adjacent to the highway.
