  2. In Development

  3. Pre-construction

  4. Construction

  5. Completion

This project will implement a SmartLane in each direction on I-71 between 5th Ave. and SR 161. A SmartLane is a traffic management solution that uses the existing shoulder as an additional lane of travel during periods of heavy congestion. When it's not needed, the SmartLane closes for use by law enforcement, emergency responders, and maintenance crews. The project will also resurface all lanes of I-71 and improve numerous bridges along the corridor.
