    Can you post an update on construction status for Hwy 45 from state line to Phase 2? Is Phase 1 ready or open now from 83rd to state line heading south from Bristol? Any updates appreciated. Thank you.

    Can you share if Phase 1 is on schedule or an ETA for completion? Some say that the first part may now run into January before traffic can use Hwy 45 from state line to 86th.
