On Thursday, the state awarded the project $160 million of Proposition 1B funds.
Placer County Supervisor Robert Wygandt represents the area.  He says the project will really improve Downtown Lincoln’s quality of life.
Wygandt: “in many transportation circumstances, there are alternative routes that can actually spread the traffic congestion.  In this case, that does not exist, so poor downtown Lincoln has just been hammered w/ excessive traffic and a mix of truck traffic and car traffic that is not compatible going through town.” 
The 11-mile bypass will begin at Industrial Boulevard and link back to Highway 65 near the town of Sheridan.
Officials expect to begin the $324 million project in June and finish it in 2011.
