Public engagement is a key component of the Downtown Highway 41 Project. Initial planning for the project in 2015-2017 included multiple public open houses and meetings with downtown businesses to identify issues and to collect input on design concepts. During the design phase of the project in 2021-2022, we will continue to offer multiple opportunities for residents, business owners, and other stakeholders to provide input. Additional engagement opportunities will be held to help prepare the community for construction of the project, tentatively scheduled for 2022-2023.
