I was poking around on FB and found this FB post tagging the Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway Facebook page.  Several great pictures showing lots of progress.  Per the post as of now the scheduled opening is December 14th!

Full disclosure, this is a post by a local politician that is running for re-election.  I am neither for nor against this person.  If this happens to violate any forum policies I apologize in advance.

 :colorful: New Flyover video has been posted on the project website at www.pgg823.com, Dated October 30th, 2018.
This video shows the very near completion of this highway. At the Lucasville-Minford Rd Interchage they're doing final tie in of the highway to the bridge. On the Eastern end of the highway striping has begun with a bright yellow strip on the Southbound/Eastbound side of the road along center barrier.  Looks like this should make the scheduled opening date of December 14th.

Bonus, shows off peak fall coloring of Southern Ohio, very beautiful!

Looking forward to my Christmas trip to visit family in Lawrence County.  :D

Nice video as always (same propeller in upper right corner).  Loved the music; found it was from a relatively obscure Tom Cruise sci-fi flick from about 5 years ago.  Downloaded some sample tracks -- found CD soundtrack on ebay & ordered it.  To whoever decided to use that music in the video, many thanks!   Looks like the video captured some median line painting in progress!
