A major construction project two years in the making is now complete. Since 2015 a two-mile stretch in Collegedale was undergoing a makeover to meet growth needs and improve safety.
The population in Collegedale has boomed over the last decade and that means more traffic on the main road into the city.
It’s a new look for a city that's on the rise, the construction cones are down on Apison Pike and all lanes are back open for drivers.
Work began on the $24.2 million dollar widening project took about two years to complete. The new two and a half mile gateway to the city now features five lanes, including two lanes in each direction, a continuous center turn lane, sidewalks, and bike paths.
