As the southbound commercial truck route, La Media Road serves as a critical trade corridor not only for our region but for the State.
As part of a crucial component of our global commerce strategy, the Chamber has built coalitions with key public and private sector entities in order to secure creative funding solutions for infrastructure projects surrounding the La Media Road corridor. Through our work on the coalition, we have obtained a major reduction in costs and the project’s timeline.
- The right of way land acquisition has progressed successfully reducing the total project cost and timeline.
- Project is estimated to cost $26 million (down from $39 million).
- Expected construction start date January 2017 (one year ahead of initial projections).
