Draft Plans for SP 2782-327

Updated Nov. 26, 2016

The un-approved plans for project SP 2782-327 have been placed on a project FTP site for the early review of the project plans. These plans are subject to change and the intent is to allow contractors to become more familiar with the project and begin their preparations for the bidding process on this project. As additional information becomes available, the ftp site will be updated.
