Update on Cresson Relief Route Construction

During construction, design modifications were required to meet federal environmental wetland protection requirements beyond the original project's scope. A change order to construct four additional small bridges to protect the wetlands added time to the construction schedule. The project is currently estimated for completion in summer 2024.

This project will improve mobility on US 377 and reduce congestion at the rail crossing in Cresson. When completed, the three-mile relief route will be a new four-lane divided highway with an overpass to cross the train tracks beginning one mile south of the intersection of US 377 and SH 171 and ending one mile north of the same intersection. The current US 377 lanes will then become Business 377.
