2/14/2017The project team is currently conducting detailed engineering and environmental studies on the alternatives retained for detailed study, and plans to present the results of these studies at a public hearing tentatively to be scheduled for Spring 2017.

Results will be presented at the public hearing, anticipated in Fall 2016, for public review and comment.
