The public is invited to an open house Thursday, December 13 on the Van Dorn Street rehabilitation project. The open house is from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Gere Branch Library, 2400 S. 56th St. The project from 33rd to 48th streets includes concrete base repair, asphalt mill and overlay, curb replacement, new pavement markings, new traffic signals, electrical work and sidewalk and ramp reconstruction.
Van Dorn is currently 26 feet wide from 33rd to 37th streets and 31 feet wide from 37th to 48th streets. At the open house, two options will be presented for widening the street to allow for the addition of a common center-turn lane. The public will be able to discuss current design options with representatives from the City's Public Works and Utilities Department. The goal for the open house is to reach a group consensus on the best strategy for the neighborhood and community.
