Prospect Street Interchange Opens, Lowering Commuter Frustration
The Prospect street interchange has opened today after a lengthy project that left many commuters frustrated.
We have been following this story for several months now. Officials wanted the project to provide a safer system for merging vehicles.
The westbound ramp at the new Prospect Street interchange will provide a route for these commuters.
"Opening up the ramps would improve the mobility of the construction project, so the timing is just right for us to be able to do that. We are going to be opening a couple of the ramps at the interchange four location as well as the West bound on ramp at the new Prospect Street interchange," said local official Jack Williams.
While safety was the ultimate goal of the project, many residents were concerned about safety around the construction work as the project has been going.
