Work includes the following areas:

The meeting will take place on Thursday, August 23rd, 2018 at The Light at Joplin Church from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (2501 E. 20th Street).

Residents are encouraged to stop by any time during these hours and check out the plans of the upcoming project. City engineers and representatives of A-Y-1, the project contractor, will be on hand to share details and answer questions.
