A U.S. District Court judge has ruled in favor of construction of the Monroe Connector/Bypass project.
Environmentalists had challenged the proposed toll road, criticizing the environmental impact study.
But Judge James Dever III said the study was done properly.
The North Carolina Turnpike Authority said it will now seek approval for a financing plan and issue the remainder of the bonds needed to finance the project and award the construction contract to a joint venture of United Infrastructure Group, Boggs Paving, Anderson Columbia and Rummel, Klepper & Kahl.
