Complete 540 groundbreaking celebration

The groundbreaking for Complete 540 on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019, is a momentous occasion for our region, and for the top transportation priority of the regional business community. It also represents the culmination of over a decade of advocacy.

Let’s get moving,
