F. Rich Hwy MP 173-185 Reconstruction: This was a proposed project start in the 2018-2021 STIP,
but was removed in the draft 2020-2023 STIP. Numerous new project starts in all regions were
removed in the new STIP due to fiscal constraint and shortage of funding statewide for all
National Highway System projects. Northern Region intends to bring this project back for scoring
consideration to be put into the STIP again, but there is no certainty on project start timing or
construction year at this time.

G. Glenn Hwy MP 142-172 Rehabilitation: Northern Region intends to bring a new project start to
nominate/score in the near future STIP. Likely that it will be a 10-mile section in this corridor to be
nominated first, depending on priority from our maintenance forces. Timing of start and
construction year uncertain at this time, but it is on our wish list as it has been some time since
projects have occurred in this segment.
