Public Open House
DATE: Wednesday, May 22, 2013
TIME: Stop by any time between 4:00 and 7:00 PM
LOCATION: Palmer Community Center (Depot)
Refreshments will be provided.
This meeting will provide an update on the project. Design is underway to add lanes, widen shoulders, accommodate turning movements at designated turn pockets and other traffic and safety improvements on the Glenn Highway from MP 34 (Glenn/Parks Interchange) to MP 42 (Arctic Avenue). The improvements are needed to accommodate increasing levels of traffic. Right of way acquisition is necessary in some places to accommodate the new width of the road and the project team has begun the process of working with property owners.
If you drive the Glenn Highway or own adjacent property or a business along on the corridor, the team wants to hear from you.
The meeting will be in an open-house format so that you may stop by anytime during the scheduled hours. Project staff will be available to discuss, answer questions, and take your comments.
Visit the project website www.brooks-alaska.com/glennhighway to learn more about the project.
