It is the Department’s policy to keep persons 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 June 2016 and the project is tentatively advertised for construction in September 2016.
