One of the most important road meetings of the year is happening this Monday, March 9, 2015
Kyle is going to revise its Master Transportation Plan. A transportation plan has the following objectives.
•Study the current transportation system.
•Project the impacts of Kyle’s growth on the transportation system.
•Determine improvements to the transportation system.
•Develop an implementation plan.
In the words of Will Ferrell from the Anchorman movie, it’s kind of a big deal.
At the meeting you will be able to learn about transportation planning, help set goals and priorities and mark up maps with your ideas!
In addition to the discussion about the transportation plan, the five road bond consultants will be on hand to answer questions you might have regarding the five road bond projects.
By the way, the city has told me that plans for the Bunton Creek Roadway project are 90% complete and the Right of Way process started late last month, February 2015.
