The Connector is divided into independent segments
for ease of construction and project funding
The overall Connector project is divided into five segments -- identified as A, B, C, D and E moving from west to east -- based on geographic and jurisdictional boundaries, roadway classification, adjacent community characteristics, projected traffic demand and potential financing opportunities. Creation of these segments is guided by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for independent utility and logical termini. For increased flexibility related to the timing of funding availability, the five segments are broken down into smaller sub-segments -- identified as 1, 2 or 3 -- based primarily on the existing roadway network and Connector roadway classifications.
