Open House Set on Yankee Hill Project

The public is invited to an open house Thursday, April 28 on the Yankee Hill roadway project. The open house is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Michael's School, 9101 S. 78th Street. 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 meet with City officials and the contractor and learn about the construction schedule and phasing. The open house will not include a formal presentation. The project is scheduled to begin in May, and the street will be open to traffic in August 2017, weather permitting.
