The Balfour Parkway is officially dead — at least as it was presented this year.
State Department of Transportation Spokesperson David Uchiyama confirmed that a Thursday morning decision by the State Board of Transportation to remove the project from the State Transportation Improvement Program finalized the end of planning for the estimated $157 million project. . .
This plan will be revised over the next two years, providing an opportunity for local officials to take another look at possibly siting something similar somewhere else or abandoning the project all together. . .
