This expansion of the Selmon Expressway consisted of 5.13 miles of elevated highway built in the median of the existing expressway. Six lanes of capacity are achieved using three reversible lanes that accommodate the flow of traffic for peak periods of the day. This “sculpture in the sky” successfully addressed congestion on a major commuter route, cutting trip times by more than half. Other states have used this bridge as a model for expanding highway corridors in existing right-of-way.
