Project Status Updates

A quick look at which CAP projects are scheduled, under construction, or completed.

Our commitment to the people is to begin, continue, or complete the widening of the identified highway corridors to four or more travel lanes using the $1.8 billion generated during the 10 years the temporary sales tax increase is in place.

In 2012, The CAP, comprised of 31 projects across the state, were pledged to be completed or underway within the next 10 years. ARDOT made good on that promise and is now “tipping its CAP” to all those who helped make these infrastructure improvements possible.
