Because what isn’t more boring and yet immensely important than traffic patterns and highway construction? 

As you may have already noticed, the $216.8 million I-57/74 project started last summer, and will continue until…it’s done, presumably. It’s a four-part project, two of which are already completed. The timeline for total completion is 2025. That sounds like it should be 216.8 million years away, but it’s actually only three. 

Anyway, take a look at the details on this website or on the lovely graphic image below. Now you have something other than the weather to talk about while waiting in line at the pharmacy, or on your weekly call to your grandparents.
