It will help congestion, for a few years, then devlopers will come in and take that away.
Construction is still well over a year away.
Bids? Blueprints haven't even been completed for the project, so bidding is still months away, likely next spring.
Federal funding? They're(FDOT) using leftover Stimulus dollars to build the project. Which, IMO, is a waste of funds. 9B was not, or at least shouldn't have been a high priority project.
