County Highway P. Project-specific actions include acquiring right-of-
way, constructing two diamond interchanges and one jug-handle 
intersection, constructing roundabouts, constructing new travel lanes 
and frontage roads, modifying local roads and intersections, improving 
and extending multi-use trails, installing new bridges and culverts, 
removing and placing fill, removing vegetation, providing storm water 
management measures, implementing corridor preservation measures, and 
implementing mitigation measures.
