Interested in Hwy 45 bypass update


I enjoyed the Gordo Hwy 82 bypass article in Sunday's paper. It reminded me of the plans for a Columbus Hwy 45 bypass. I remember there were congressional appropriations of millions of dollars for planning and environmental studies. Then the idea seems to have been totally dropped. It would be of great interest to your readers to see an article on where we have been on the subject, why nothing has happened in recent years, and how we might resurrect the project. Infrastructure spending is something we should not get out of.
