It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken.  It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development.  At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary.
 
The design plans for the project are expected to be completed in April 2015 with a tentative advertising date for construction of July 2015.
