When the Lebanon bypass opened in July of 2008, it was expected to put Marion County in the fast lane toward progress.
The new road was intended to give commuters better access to the county and alleviate traffic congestion in downtown. It was also expected that new stores and businesses would locate along the bypass.
And then, the economy went in the tank.
"I think the bypass has opened a lot of new opportunities and has expanded the city but the potential of it hasn't been realized yet," said Marion County Economic Development Director Tom Lund.
