The Ray stretches 18 miles — starting at exit 18 and continuing to the West Point visitor center — and has already been recognized within the state for the technology installed as part of the project, such as a free tire pressure sensor and electric car charger at the visitor center. The center is also home to a butterfly garden and a sample section of solar roadway.
