Two widening projects have transformed a congested two-mile section of Mingo Road into a congestion-free street. The first project, which was built in 2001, widened Mingo Road to five lanes between 61st and 71st streets, including building the permanent south approach to the 61st Street intersection. The second project, which began in 2002 and was completed in early 2003, involved widening the section between 51st and 61st streets to five lanes, including building the permanent north approach to the intersection. Both projects were funded by the 1996 sales tax. The two widening projects complete the 61st Street and Mingo Road intersection, as the main intersection and 61st Street were widened in the mid 1990s through a project funded by the 1991 sales tax. That project built temporary approaches for Mingo Road that were rebuilt through the later widening projects. Photograph taken August3, 2003.
