Andrea Petrich, Washington State Department of Transportation Communications, wrote on the WSDOT Blog that the project was completed within budget and ahead of schedule by Contractor Tapani Underground.

The Event included an opportunity for guests to walk or bike the new .5 mile trail that was also part of the project.  The trail helps better connect pedestrians to businesses in the area and bicyclists to US Bike Route 10 across Washington and Bike Route 3 down Whidbey Island.
