and updated in 2019, includes development concepts for the Tower Terrace Road Corridor. The plan provides a vision of local development. For more information visit the Corridor MPO website.
2018 - 2020
Details: The design process involves intense collaboration between city representatives, Anderson Bogert, and the residents of the Tower Terrace Road Corridor who are most impacted by the project. Efforts are taken to develop design solutions that will meet the needs of growth in the area while protecting the interests of those who already reside in the corridor.
2017 - 2020
Details: As the design concepts for the project are finalized, the potential environmental impact of the project is carefully studied and evaluated. This process is crucial to the progress of future phases of the Tower Terrace Road project. This part of the Federal Aid process requires a more detailed review of the project impacts at the State and Federal levels. Alternatives and mitigation of environmental impacts are developed and public involvement are included. The Environmental Assessment started in January 2017, and final State and Federal sign off anticipated in 2019/2020.
