Construction is going to begin on I-485 finally! A project that will add toll lanes and widen the highway from Rea to Providence Rd. will officially start Sunday night. 

So I’m one of the lucky few who’s commute on 485 doesn’t include a ton of traffic. My 4:30am and 1pm commute times mean less traffic for me. But I have good news for my wife and others who get stuck in daily rush hour traffic… Construction on the toll lanes and an additional set of lanes is about to get going. See all the details on the project and when it’s expected to be finished here. Happy travels!
