While the grant proposals are being evaluated, the project team is continuing through its engineering and environmental (NEPA) phases with a particular focus on finding additional cost savings. Permitting and right-of-way acquisition are scheduled to begin in mid-2021. Construction would start in 2023 and go through 2025. Without grant funding, additional project redesign may be needed to meet budgeted funds, with a new project schedule.
