The project to upgrade the intersection of Massey and Halfway boulevards near Valley Mall is substantially complete, Washington County Deputy Director of Public Works Rob Slocum said Tuesday morning.

"We finished last week around Friday," Slocum said. "There are just a few items that need to be completed."

Those items, according to Slocum, include cleaning up around the intersection and helping to grow back the grass in the area.

"It'll take until about the spring season for the grass to shape up," he said. "But all of the pavement is down and all of the lanes are open at the intersection."

Work on the intersection began last spring. The project was divided into six phases, which included working on different corners of the intersection in the first four phases and fixing up the area to accommodate the upgrades in the last two phases.

According to a published report in June, the project cost about $5.2 million. About $2 million of that came from the state, and $1.47 million came from federal funding.
