Open house set for tomorrow

Construction on the long awaited Illinois Street project is currently underway and Department of Transportation officials are hosting an open house to update the public.

The informational meeting will be held tomorrow, April 4th, beginning at 4 pm at the old F.E. Mining House located on Illinois Street.

DOT officials say reconstruction plans have been in place for many months so the open house is meant to be more of a public update rather than an opportunity to weigh in on construction plans.

Construction through the summer will impact traffic in the area, but DOT Information Officer Meadow Bailey says there will be a lot of construction underneath the road as well.
