The roadwork was supposed to take 14 months, but with lighter traffic, crews could work around the clock instead of just at night. That means the project is finishing 10 months ahead of schedule.
The roadway is back open now, but crews still have to finish median repair and add some final lane striping. Those finishing touches are expected to be finished by early August.
