The public is invited to an open house Thursday, March 13 on safety improvements planned for the intersection of 66th and Fremont streets. The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria area at Pershing Elementary School, 6402 Judson Street.
Participants will learn about the need for the improvements and have the opportunity to view maps and photos of the current conditions. The public will be able to ask questions and discuss their concerns with the project team. Following the open house, the design team will begin developing and evaluating concepts to improve the intersection.
The 66th and Fremont intersection will be designed in 2014 with construction beginning as early as 2015, subject to the approval of the environmental document and the acquisition of right-of-way, if necessary.
The project is being funded through the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program, which requires a 10-percent local match. The City's match will come from funds designated for safety projects.
