One of the questions I plan on asking is whether there will be an entrance/exit onto CTH Z. The aerial view from week No. 2 construction shows an area carved out close to CTH Z.

If you have any other thoughts on questions feel free to submit and those will be asked while officials are at the groundbreaking.
