The public is invited to provide input about the design, proposed construction period, proposed detour route and any other project-related concerns they may have via the form at the bottom of this webpage. At this time, approximately one acre of new right of way, a half acre of permanent utility easement and a section of temporary easement will need to be acquired for the project.

Q: What is the current proposed detour?

A: A signed detour is not planned at this time.
