The Department of Public Works said it won't be much longer until people in Central have easier access to I-12.

The Central Thruway is in the final stages of being built.

It's a four-mile, $62 million project that would link Central to the interstate; the project includes four lane highway and seven bridges.

The thruway is set to open later this year.

DPW said it's a huge time saver for people in Central.

“There are a few last items - punch list items - but other that, the only thing keeping it from being fully open is the intersection at Greenwell Springs,” stated David Guillory with the DPW. “It will cut travel times for a lot of folks.”

The thruway is part of Mayor Holden's Greenlight Project.

Work started on the Central Thruway in 2008.
