Future Proposed Construction Projects


In addition to the CLT 2015 development program, there are other projects at various stages of implementation. When complete, CLT will look very different than it does today and use more modern and efficient technology to meet customers’ needs and expectations.

As these projects become active, they will be added to the main construction page.
