The State Department of Transportation celebrated the completion of the Kensington Expressway improvement project Friday. State and community leaders gathered at the Jefferson and Cherry Street exit ramp.
The $5.8 million project was funded by state and local investments. It features a garden, along with the newly narrowed streets, sidewalks and lighting.
The State Department of Transportation Acting Regional Director Darrell Kaminski said African artwork and symbols were inscribed into retaining walls near the exit to honor the community's heritage.
