The project will have two phases: The southern phase will span from Washington Avenue to Forest Drive, and the northern phase will span from Forest Drive to the north approach of Burger King on North Federal Boulevard.

The prime contractor will be directed, through construction requirements, to not work Aug. 17-23 during the upcoming solar eclipse celebration and to provide "full unrestricted vehicular and pedestrian travel during this period." The contractor will also be required to maintain two-way traffic at all times during construction, and the contractor may close access to landowners and businesses only with permission of the landowner, business owner and WYDOT.
