What is the schedule for rebuilding U.S. Highway 59 between Ottawa and Lawrence? I thought it was supposed to start this year but I don't see any evidence of it being started yet.

Construction actually started June 20 and was celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony 3 miles south of Ottawa. The Franklin County section of the highway is expected to be finished by 2009. Work will continue into Douglas County and completion is expected in 2011.
