The plan implementation cost was last estimated in 2016 and is listed below. Construction costs have increased significantly since 2016.
- With bus lanes, the capital cost would be $102 million with an operation and maintenance budget of $3.2 million annually.
- With a light rail, the capital cost would be $428 - $527 million with an operation and maintenance budget of $6 million annually. The light rail would run from the airport to Rubey Park.
A new estimate will be sought during the plan development phase of the project.
Funding for the plan will be a combination of local, state, and federal dollars. However, we won't know the specifics until there is consensus in the community on the path forward for a new bridge.
