There are three major phases of the project, design refinement, design engineering, and construction, each of which is funded by the $2.155M (total) MTIP grant.
The project is currently in design refinement phase, started in July of 2007. The purpose of this phase is to refine the design concepts from the St Johns Truck Strategy and the St Johns/Lombard Plan such that any community issues related to the design concepts are addressed to the greatest extent possible before the project moves into the design engineering phase. To accomplish this, the project has established a Citizens Advisory Committee, composed of local stakeholder groups and independent residents, to help identify the issues, the options for addressing the issues, and selecting preferred design modifcations. Additional public involvement will be accomplished through open house events in the fall- dates to be determined.
