Right. I know people are all up in arms about the toll being extended, but my understanding is this project was contingent upon that.
People were apparently mad that the bid came in low for the overpass, meaning it could have been funded by non-toll avenues potentially. But to me that just means one of the other many necessary projects on 400 can be started/completed.
This project seems like the epitome of something everybody should be in favor of: it unclogs urban arteries and frees up the interstates.
