"According to Young, the project was funded by the business community and private developers."
Hmm, maybe that why it doesn't seem to be the same as other roads in the area? Maybe there is a different standard for privately funded infrastructure? Is it even a public road, or wholly owned and maintained by the resort?
The next two lines are:
"Langford facilitated it we obviously worked with them, what they do is they are paying for this road and the interchange as development occurs," said Young.
In other words the taxpayer has paid for the project and if and when development occurs the monies will be recovered by taxes and/or development fees.
