The City of Mission has landed yet another road widening project while having to pay only a fraction of the total cost. Addressing the need for a major north-south corridor on Mission’s west side, the city council is pressing forward with plans to widen Inspiration Road, between Expressway 83 and Mile 3 Road to the north.
City Manager Julio Cerda said the city is paying the engineering and right-of-way acquisition costs, or about $2.6 million of the total $12.9 million cost of the project. The rest of the funding is coming from the MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization).
