Lane was selected as the best value proposer for the design-build (DB) contract to widen both the interstate highways of 40 and 77. The total widening for both highways is approximately 7.4 miles long. A partial turbine interchange at the two interstates will be designed and constructed to improve the system connection. The interchange will feature high-capacity, high-speed ramps. Construction began in the spring of 2019; the project is estimated to be completed by mid-2024
