The Study process involves significant data collection including current traffic volumes, current and future land use along the corridor, and right of way needs. The study also will involve thorough environmental analysis to ensure the project does not negatively impact protected and endangered species, wetlands, or other natural resources. Alternative roadway alignments will be considered to develop and propose a recommended alignment that best addresses the needs of the community and region.
The public will be invited to learn about the project and provide public comment during the RCA study. Two public meetings are anticipated, as well as public hearings and project newsletters, to help keep the community informed.
