I invite you to attend a follow-up community meeting on plans to improve the hazardous intersection at Touhy, Ridge and Rogers. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, September 2nd,7:00 p.m., at the Pottawattomie Park Fieldhouse, 7340 N. Rogers.
An initial community meeting on the topic was held last March at which City traffic engineers presented a preliminary engineering plan for the intersection and invited community feedback and suggestions. The meeting next week is a follow-up to that meeting
Funding for design improvements to the intersection was approved by the voters in the 2011 Participatory Budgeting election, but the City delayed implementation of the plan until Peoples Gas finished with its gas main installation work in the area. The gas main work was completed last year and the City is ready to move forward with construction of a newly reconfigured intersection.
Please come to the meeting next Wednesday to see the latest plans. If you are unable to attend, I will provide a full report after the meeting.
