Process Overview

Public involvement is a guiding force for the intersection design.

Stakeholders who reside, work, own property, worship, and play in the immediate project area are directly involved in the design process.

Public input is being collected to help design engineers refine the best solution.

Constructive engagement and collaboration will ensure that the final design meets the future needs of project area stakeholders and the entire community.
