The public is invited to an open house on the Yankee Hill Road improvement project from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 28 at St. Michael's School, 9101 S. 78th St. The project includes paving Yankee Hill from 70th Street to Highway 2, widening it to four lanes between Sutherland Street and Highway 2 and building roundabouts at the quarter-mile, half-mile and mile intersections.
At the open house, residents will have the opportunity to review and comment on the proposed right of way and easements. The open house will not include a formal presentation. Representatives from the City and the design consultants, Olsson Associates and Parsons Brinckerhoff, will be available to answer questions.
The project is being funded with wheel tax, new construction and impact fee dollars. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in June 2016.
